Get Ready For MTD

New Making Tax Digital (MTD) rules affect around 1.2 million businesses. Many of them will need to submit their first quarterly return to HMRC by August 7th using compliant software.

HMRC is urging businesses that have an annual turnover that is over £85,000 to register for MTD before the VAT filing date. If a business plans on paying by direct debit, they need to register by July 27th.

MTD was announced in 2015 and these rules became law for VAT periods that start on or after April 1st 2019. VAT-registered businesses need to keep digital VAT records. They must then submit their VAT return using relevant software. This applies if a business has a taxable turnover above £85,000.

Over 600,000 of the businesses that need to sign up have done so. This is out of the 1.2 million that need to. There are approximately 10,000 businesses registering for MTD daily. Luckily, there won’t be penalties for keeping records and filing during the first year if a business does their best to comply.
