MTD for Income Tax Self Assessment

Making Tax Digital is changing the way businesses submit their Income Tax Self Assessment (ITSA) returns.

Making Tax Digital for ITSA explained

From April 2024, MTD for ITSA will apply to unincorporated businesses and landlords with a total business or property income above £10,000 per year.

Requirements of MTD for ITSA

Under MTD for ITSA, unincorporated businesses and landlords will be required to submit quarterly updates to HMRC providing summary information of income and expenditure for the quarter. After the fourth quarter, an End Of Period Statement will need to be made for each income source. A final declaration will also need to be made including other sources of taxable income such as savings and investment income.
