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 software like Xero.

The Government confirmed in their Spring Statement that Making Tax Digital will not be extended for any new taxes or businesses in 2020.
