MTD UK – Making Tax Digital


Making Tax Digital Making Tax Digital is the government’s plans to make it easier to submit their tax. HMRC is aiming to be one of the most digitally advanced tax administrations in the world. Making Tax Digital is one of the ways to achieve this purpose.
With UK MTD, it will be more effective more efficient easier for taxpayers to get their tax right.

VAT-registered businesses with a taxable turnover above the VAT threshold are now required to use the Making Tax Digital service to keep records digitally and use software to submit their VAT returns for VAT periods that started on or after 1 April 2019.

The exception to this is a small minority of VAT-registered businesses with more complex requirements. As part of planning for the VAT pilot, HMRC continued to engage with stakeholders and listen to their concerns about business readiness for Making Tax Digital. We have made the decision to delay mandatory for these customers until 1 October 2019 to ensure there is sufficient time to test the service with them in the pilot before they are mandated to join.

HMRC has published a VAT Notice  which explains the rules for Making Tax Digital for VAT and about the digital information that must be kept.

You can access the VAT notice from HMRC’s Page for UK MTD VAT Notice.

S4FN has prepared an add-on for your MTD UK needs. You can check if from UK MTD product page.
