From April 2019, If your business is VAT registered with a taxable turnover over the VAT threshold (currently £85,000), you are required to keep digital VAT business records and send returns using MTD compatible software for VAT periods starting on or after 1st April 2019.
From April 2022, it is compulsory for all smaller businesses who are VAT registered, with a taxable turnover below the VAT threshold to be using MTD software for VAT periods starting on or after April 1st 2022.
You will need to keep business records digitally from the beginning of your accounting period. This does not mean you need to keep additional records for VAT, they just need to be recorded digitally. If already using an accounting software package, check with your software provider to ensure they will be MTD compatible. If you do not currently use accounting software, please contact us for a free no obligation consultation on how we can assist.
