By now you've probably heard of Making Tax Digital (MTD) even if you're not exactly sure what it means for your business.
Under MTD, most companies have to submit their VAT Returns to HMRC from their accounts software from April 2019. This means you can no longer submit via the Government Gateway. If you don't already submit your returns through your accounts software, this could mean a completely new way of preparing and submitting your returns.
Why get prepared now?
April 2019 might seem like a long time off, but when you consider you may only have a couple more VAT quarters before the new rules are mandatory, that's potentially just two more VAT Returns to make sure you're getting it right.
HMRC are running an open pilot from Autumn 2018 where you can sign up for MTD early and get used to the new process. Now's a great time, before the pilot starts, to find out exactly how your business is affected and start planning for any software or process changes you need to make.
We recommend you bookmark this article as we'll update it as soon as the pilot is open.
