"HMRC’s ambition is to become one of the most digitally advanced tax administrations in the world, modernising the tax system to make it more effective, more efficient and easier for customers to comply."

Did you know that from April 2019 Making Tax Digital (MTD) for Business systems will become mandatory to meet your VAT obligations?

This means that any entity, whether a sole trader, partnership, company, charity or landlord that makes VAT-able supplies above the VAT threshold (currently £85,000 turnover), will be required to submit their VAT return using functional compatible software that is compliant with HMRC’s new MTD reporting system. The Government’s main objective of MTD is to plug the £3.5bn gap that is generated by mistakes made on VAT returns whilst also saving time for both HMRC & taxpayers.

So the digital revolution is coming and it will affect you and your business, even if not right now, in the near future. Already we control our own personal accounts and finances online. We nearly all use online banking, credit checkers and perform BACS payments. Nearly all of us agree it does make our life easier and makes information quicker and easier to obtain. So why should we be treating our businesses any different?
