Making Tax Digital – Explained

What does HMRC mean by being digitally compliant?

In the spring 2015 Budget, the Making Tax Digital (MTD) initiative was first announced. This introduced the requirement for quarterly reporting to HMRC via digital records for small businesses, landlords and the self-employed over the VAT threshold (£85,000) for VAT purposes.

HMRC have however, delayed the date by which all those eligible had to be digitally compliant from April 2018 to April 2019 for VAT purposes and from April 2020, quarterly digital reporting will be required for other taxes (income and corporation tax).
