What is Making Tax Digital

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is a government initiative to modernise HMRC’s tax system, with the aim
of making the whole process of administrating tax simpler and more efficient.

Making Tax Digital for Income Tax

The government has now announced that they will introduce Making Tax Digital for Income Tax Self- Assessment (ITSA) a year later than planned, in the tax year beginning in April 2024.

The start date for partnerships to join MTD for ITSA has been put back still further to the tax year beginning in April 2025.

There is a £10,000 per annum gross income threshold which means that most self-employed traders and buy to let landlords will be mandated to comply with MTD for income tax from April 2024.

Making Tax Digital for Vat

Most VAT-registered businesses with a taxable turnover above the VAT threshold (£85,000) are already familiar with Making Tax Digital. They’ve been required to keep digital VAT records and send returns using MTD compatible software since 2019.

From April 2022, Making Tax Digital will apply to all VAT-registered businesses (with a few exceptions).
