Making Tax Digital
Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT has been implemented since April 2019 which means businesses with taxable turnover above the VAT registration threshold (currently £85,000) are required to keep business records for VAT purposes digitally and file VAT returns using MTD-compatible software.
If you’re just starting out

Some VAT schemes are designed to help small businesses in its initial stages save time and money. If you are not required to register for VAT based on your expected turnover we will advise you whether you would benefit from voluntary registration.
If you are not registered for VAT, we will monitor your situation so that should it become compulsory for you to register we will complete any registration procedures with HMRC to ensure you remain compliant.
If you’re VAT registered
We will keep on top of your VAT Returns, check your VAT Return figures are correct and submit your VAT Returns timely to HMRC using MTD compatible software.
