What is Making Tax Digital?

Making Tax Digital is an HMRC initiative designed to make sure the UK tax system is effective, efficient and easier for taxpayers.

Making Tax Digital for VAT makes it mandatory for VAT-registered businesses above the £85k threshold to keep records and submit VAT returns digitally using HMRC-recognised MTD software like Xero.

The Government confirmed in July that Making Tax Digital will be extended to include all VAT-registered businesses from April 2022 and for income tax from April 2023.
