Making Tax Digital for VAT

What is MTD?

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is an HMRC initiative designed to make sure the UK tax system is more effective, efficient and easier for taxpayers.

From 1 April 2019, most VAT registered businesses with a taxable turnover above the VAT threshold of £85k will either need to use suitable MTD-compatible software to submit their VAT returns. It will no longer be possible for those businesses to submit VAT returns manually via the HMRC online services portal.

Other areas of MTD, such as Self Assessment, have been put on hold until 2020 at the earliest.

How we can help

Pope Accountancy has introduced their own in-house bespoke HMRC-approved software, which allows us to manage the digital records and submit VAT returns under MTD on behalf of our clients.

Whether you are using simple spreadsheets to manage your books, or other non-MTD compliant accounting software in your business, we can help with our VAT review and submission services, giving you less to worry about with ensuring MTD compliance in your business.

If we already deal with your bookkeeping then it couldn't be easier - we will already be maintaining the digital records for your business, and dealing with MTD for VAT will already be part of the services we provide for you.

Under Making Tax Digital it is now mandatory to keep and maintain digital records for your business - this can be using spreadsheets, or with accounting software from a wide range of products. However, only the more modern cloud-based software options (such as Xero or Sage Business Cloud) are fully suitable for managing records as well as handling VAT returns, without the use of third-party products or services.
