What is it?

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is a key part of the government’s plans to make it easier for individuals and businesses to get their tax right and keep on top of their affairs. All business will eventually be required to keep digital records of their income and expenses, and submit quarterly returns as well as end-of-year statements to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

Who does it apply to?

MTD will eventually apply to all business and all taxes. HMRC are implementing a phased roll-out starting with sole traders and landlords.

When will it happen?

Sole traders and landlords earning over £10,000 per year need to be signed up to MTD for Income Tax by April 2024, and some general partnerships will need to meet the requirements from April 2025. Limited companies are expected to need to meet the MTD for Corporation Tax requirements  by April 2026.

What do I need to do?

To ensure that you are ready and compliant, we will provide assistance and technical support with setting up MTD for Income Tax and what records now need to be kept.
