Making Tax Digital for VAT

It is now mandatory for all VAT-registered businesses to comply with the MTD for VAT regime and it is no longer possible to submit VAT returns to HMRC via their web portal.

MTD does not require you to keep additional records for VAT, but to record them digitally. If you don't already, you'll need to start keeping digital records. This can be via a spreadsheet or bookkeeping software. A spreadsheet can be used to calculate or summarise VAT transactions to arrive at the return information you need to send to HMRC.

Sample spreadsheets to get you started can be downloaded from our Knowledgebase site.
