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. If your turnover is above the £85k VAT threshold, you need to keep records and file your returns digitally using HMRC-recognised MTD software, like Xero. All VAT-registered businesses will need to comply with MTD from April 2022.


Become compliant with Xero’s Making Tax Digital software

It’s HMRC-recognised and available in all Xero plans that support VAT.
