Making Tax Digital is a significant change to the way we file our VAT. Since 1 April 2019, most businesses that are VAT registered and make taxable supplies over £85,000 have had to keep digital VAT records and submit their VAT returns using MTD compatible software.

Making Tax Digital extended to April 2022

Making Tax Digital will apply all VAT registered traders for VAT periods starting on and after 1 April 2022. If you are not sure what to do next, there are a number of options for businesses depending on your situation and preferences. Our MTD Checker has been created to help you understand whether you are affected and offer you some solution ideas.

Make sure you sign up for MTD at the right time

HMRC closes the signup system to ensure that any direct debits are transferred across in time to make a payment for the VAT return.

You should sign up for MTD between the 8th and 23rd of any month to ensure that you are not trying to sign up in the close down period. To make sure you allow for any problems or delays, it’s best to start the sign up process as early as possible in the VAT return period you need to file your return for.
