Making Tax Digital


From April 2022, all VAT registered businesses must comply with the Making Tax Digital for VAT regulations.

From April 2026, self-employed individuals, and landlords with a turnover greater than £50,000 will be mandated into MTD for income tax (MTD for ITSA).

MTD for ITSA for general partnerships, businesses/landlords with turnover below £30,000 and MTD for Corporation Tax is yet to be mandated.

What is Making Tax Digital?

MTD is part of the governments ambition to become ‘one of the most digitally advanced tax systems in the world.’ Their long-term aim is focused on improving collection of tax, enhancing their relationships with taxpayers, and making better use of their resources to reduce errors and non-compliance.

The MTD rules require you to:

  • Keep and maintain your records digitally

  • Send your returns to HMRC via MTD compatible software

Making Tax Digital compatible software

As a business, you will be required to preserve and then submit your existing tax records digitally. Cloud-based accounting software, or bridging software for Excel users is required.
We can guide you through the process of digitalising your records, as our people are trained and certified with many software providers including Sage, QuickBooks, Xero and FreeAgent.

How can we help you to plan with confidence?

We help you implement the best solution for your business. This may include the provision of training or Simpkins Edwards providing a fully-comprehensive bookkeeping service.

As well as ensuring you are MTD-compliant, we can also design and implement systems and processes to save you time and money.  We can review your internal procedures to identify areas where new technology can improve efficiencies.

Embracing cloud-based accountancy software enables you, and us, to review your data on a real-time basis, which is invaluable for decision-making. We offer quarterly or monthly management information reports so that you can make the most out of the financial information that is processed.

The management reports are customised depending on the key performance indicators that are important to you. We can work together to ensure you have access to the information of most value and can plan with confidence.

Simpkins Edwards can support your business through the transition to digitisation.
