There has been much uncertainty around the long-awaited MTD. One thing, however, is sure: as of April 2019, businesses with a turnover above the VAT threshold (£85,000) will need to keep digital records (for VAT purposes only) and provide their VAT return information to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) through Making Tax Digital (MTD) functional compatible software.
Every year we inform and entertain hundreds of MDs, FDs and business owners at our range of expert events. You can attend for free - without obligation - and you don’t need to be an existing client!
