Making Tax Digital Update

We’ve published several news items related to the Making Tax Digital (MTD) initiative in the last few years. This has now become quite well established and since April 2019, VAT-registered businesses with a turnover above the VAT threshold must keep VAT records digitally and send returns using Making Tax Digital compatible software.

It is important to note that from April‌‌ ‌2022, these requirements will apply to all VAT-registered businesses, including those with a turnover below the VAT threshold.

HMRC are helpfully providing a seminar that gives an overview of Making Tax Digital, including digital record keeping, compatible software, how to sign up and submitting VAT returns directly from the business. It’s taking place on Friday 19th November between 1:45pm and 2:45pm. You can register via the link below.
