Making Tax Digital, are you ready? With Making Tax Digital ‘MTD’ coming into effect as part of the government “transformed tax system’ by 2020 have you got everything in place to make sure you are compliant with HMRC?

What is MTD?

The MTD initiative from HMRC requires every VAT registered business trading in the UK to submit their UK VAT returns digitally to HMRC.

The primary aim of MTD is to make tax administration more effective and efficient using a fully digital tax solution by 2020.

MTD is the most significant change to the UK’s tax system for more than 20 years. HMRC’s plan to make the tax system digital will make paying tax easier, reduce errors in tax returns and allow businesses and their accountants to monitor their finances in real time.

What happens if I’m not ready for MTD?

If you’re VAT registered and do not fulfil your MTD responsibilities, you’re liable to receive penalties from HMRC. If you aren’t VAT registered, there are no requirements for you yet, but it’s worth keeping in mind, especially if you’re near the registration threshold which is a ‘Vatable’ turnover of £85,000.
