MTD for ITSA Delayed Until 2026

MTD for ITSA Notices: HMRC’s Atomic Kitten

HMRC recently released the much-anticipated MTD for ITSA Notices, a document that TaxCalc has long been campaigning for and were promised early sight of six months ago – a promise that never quite came to fruition.

When first published back in July 2018, the clarity provided by the equivalent MTD for VAT Notice 700/22 was a welcome breath of fresh air, clarifying many outstanding points in relation to functional compatible software, digital links and the use of spreadsheets.

MTD legislation day: The BIG reveal

The full MTD regulations have been made public for the first time today. Until now, we have only had an early draft of the regulations to work with and it is fair to say that there were some glaring holes in that draft document – particularly in relation to partnerships, basis periods and when taxpayers could enter or leave the MTD regime. 

We have been waiting a long time for those draft regulations to be updated and our tax experts are now pouring over the contents to disseminate the fine detail.
