Digital Tax

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is an HMRC initiative that will revolutionise the UK tax system and ultimately bring an end to self-assessment.

The changes apply to a wide range of taxpayers, including most businesses, self-employed professionals, and landlords. This ‘new and improved’ tax system will require the majority of business owners to maintain digital records using compatible software.

The primary aim of Making Tax Digital is to make tax administration more effective, efficient, and easier for taxpayers through the implementation of a fully digitalised tax system by 2020, whilst also reducing HMRC’s overheads for managing tax affairs.

Tax recording will be more accurate, providing fewer opportunities for errors, miscalculations and fraudulent activity.

The process will be faster and more automated for businesses, accountants and HMRC, helping them save valuable time.

.. and therefore, much easier
With the right software, Making Tax Digital will make it easier for small businesses to record and file their tax returns online.


Making Tax Digital for business (MTDfb) begins on 1 April 2019 with MTD for VAT. From that date, VAT-registered businesses above the threshold of £85k will have to keep digital records and submit VAT returns using compatible software.
