Making Tax Digital for VAT is now live

Apr 08, 2019

The first stage in Making Tax Digital (“MTD”) began the last week on Monday 1 April with the start date of MTD for VAT.  Whilst the first returns for VAT return periods commencing on or after 1 April 2019 are not due for several weeks we’d like to hear about your experience with MTD for VAT so far.

We’re interested to know if you’ve signed up your business or clients for MTD and if you took part in the trial before the system went live on 1 April. Let us know your experiences to date so that we’re equipped with the right information to discuss progress to date and any issues/problems with HMRC.

HMRC has now issued guidance confirming that firms will need to create a single agent services account for the whole practice to sign up clients to MTD for VAT. The Making Tax Digital for Business - stakeholder communications pack has also been updated
