As you may know, the UK Government remains committed to roll out Making Tax Digital (MTD) in April 2019. This means that non-exempt businesses will have to keep digital accounting records and file information with HMRC quarterly.
Businesses need to ensure that their accounting records are “Digital” and, starting from April 2019, keep their VAT accounting records digitally. “Digital” excludes manual books and paper records.
Businesses will also be required to submit their VAT returns directly to HMRC in electronic format; it will no longer be possible to manually complete VAT returns on HMRC’s website. There are exemptions, but most businesses with turnover above £85,000 will need to start planning for Digital Tax today!
At MHA MacIntyre Hudson, we recommend our clients move onto cloud-based accounting systems to improve the quality, efficiency and accessibility of their financial information. An additional benefit is that many of our digital solutions are also MTD compliant, so from April 2019 you will also be able to file your VAT returns under the new system with minimal effort.
However, if you are on non-MTD compliant software, or if you wish to continue using spreadsheets to maintain your VAT accounting records, then we also provide an alternate digital solution. HMRC allow the use of bridging software to submit VAT returns electronically. This means that we can take an export from your current accounting system, or a copy of your spreadsheet records, and submit the relevant VAT return data direct to HMRC on your behalf using our in-house bridging software, keeping you MTD compliant.
Key steps you should take for MTD:
