Making Tax Digital (MTD) – What you need to do now!

We have identified that you may be affected by the upcoming legislative changes in record keeping and the submission of VAT returns to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

As you may be aware, HMRC are introducing “Making Tax Digital” (MTD) for VAT registered businesses (with turnover above the VAT threshold), from April 2019. We expect VAT registered businesses with lower turnover and non- VAT registered businesses to follow suit later.

This means that businesses will be required to submit VAT returns via accounting software rather than via the HMRC website. You must therefore ensure that you have appropriate compatible accounting software in place, ahead of the change in VAT return submission procedures to comply with the new legislation.

The conversion process (i.e. moving from your current system to the cloud system) is easier than you think.

As experts in the process, we can support your conversion, cost effectively.

  • Making Tax Digital – What is happening and how it will affect you or your business
  • What cloud system best suits your needs (we work with all the major software providers and have assisted nearly 200 businesses  in the conversion process)
  • What you need to do, what to expect and how we support
  • How we support the conversion process with timescales, deadlines and cost
  • Provide a demonstration of a cloud accounting system like Xero and the many benefits it can bring as well as being compliant with MTD

Many of our clients are in a similar position so you need to act quickly.  You need to have enough time to ensure the conversion process runs smoothly and that you are operational prior to the MTD submission deadline.

To assist you in these changes, we are running a series of seminars at which will we discuss MTD in further detail and advise of the solutions available. To cover the cost of the seminars, there is a small charge of £50 plus VAT.

The seminars, which are expected to last around three hours including a demonstration of cloud accounting options, will be held:

18 May 2018 – Darlington – 8.30am arrival for 9.00am start

22 May 2018 – Darlington – 8.30am arrival for 9.00am start

23 May 2018 – Durham – 8.30am arrival for 9.00am start

30 May 2018 – York – 8.30am arrival for 9.00am start

What you need to do now!
