Making Tax Digital for VAT

If you are a VAT registered company with turnover above the VAT threshold, from 1st of April 2019 you will be required to use the new Making Tax Digital service.

VAT-registered businesses with a taxable turnover above the VAT threshold are required to use the Making Tax Digital service to keep records digitally and use software to submit their VAT returns from 1st April 2019.

The exception to this is a small minority of VAT-registered businesses with more complex requirements. As part of planning for the VAT pilot, HMRC continued to engage with stakeholders and listen to their concerns about business readiness for Making Tax Digital. The decision has been made to delay mandation for these customers until 1st October 2019 to ensure there is sufficient time to test the service with them in the pilot before they are mandated to join.
