Remember it’s important to ensure that your business is ready for Making Tax Digital

In July 2020, it was announced that all VAT-registered businesses must file digitally through Making Tax Digital from April 2022, regardless of turnover. The main purpose of this initiative is to help businesses eliminate common errors and save time managing their tax affairs.

With this in mind, it’s important that your business is set up to submit VAT returns sent using software that supports Making Tax Digital for VAT such as Xero. HMRC is also now reminding businesses below the £85,000 threshold of the steps which they need to take to be ready.
