Author | Hope D’Arcy

 

Making TAX Digital (MTD) is one step HMRC is taking to become one of the most digitally advanced TAX administrations in the world. This HMRC initiative  has been designed to ensure that the UK TAX System is efficient and easier for taxpayers. Making TAX Digital legally comes into effect on the 1st April 2019 for VAT, VAT-registered businesses above the threshold of £85k will be affected by this new law. For those affected:

  • HMRC’s online VAT portal will close.
  • VAT returns must be submitted through MTD software.
  • Businesses must digitally record their VAT transactions and returns.

HMRC’s Making Tax Digital – Foundations:

  • Better use of information: No Duplication of data that HMRC already has or can obtain directly.
  • TAX is real-time: HMRC will collect and process information in real-time.
  • A single financial account: Making TAX Digital will lead to a comprehensive financial picture in your digital account.
  • Interacting digital with customers: Interact directly with HMRC when required.

All VAT registered businesses must keep and preserve certain records and accounts, all data transfers must also be digital (to create a digital journey). All businesses must use compatible software that can connect with HMRC systems through API’s (Application Programming Interface).
