Making Tax Digital is a key part of the government’s plans to make it easier for individuals and businesses to get their tax right and keep on top of their affairs.
Currently the HMRC guidelines are as follows:
Making Tax Digital for VAT
All VAT registered businesses
MTD rules are currently compulsory for all VAT registered businesses. MTD became compulsory for VAT registered businesses with a turnover below the VAT threshold (£85,000) in April 2022.
These businesses are required to keep digital records and should submit VAT returns using compatible software.
Making Tax Digital for Income Tax
MTD for Income Tax will be compulsory for self-employed businesses and landlords with income above £50,000 from April 2026. Those with an income of between £30,000 and £50,000 will need to comply with the rules from April 2027.
