Since 2019, the vast majority of VAT-registered businesses with a taxable turnover above the VAT threshold (£85,000) have been mandated to keep digital VAT records and send returns using Making Tax Digital (MTD)-compatible software. From April 2022 these requirements will apply to all VAT-registered businesses.
Background to MTD can be found here
It has also been announced that MTD for Income Tax Self-Assessment (ITSA), which was originally intended to start in 2018, will finally be introduced from April 2023 for unincorporated businesses and landlords with total business or property income above £10,000 per year.
Most businesses will have 2 years to prepare and test the service voluntarily prior to its introduction.
