What is Making Tax Digital?

In a nutshell...

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is the government’s initiative to implement a fully digital tax system in the UK, where taxpayers keep digital records and use MTD-compatible software or ‘bridges’ to make tax submissions electronically.

The tax calendar will change with a new requirement to submit quarterly income/expense updates directly to HMRC, with a final Annual Declaration sent electronically, replacing the current annual Self Assessment Tax Return.

MTD for ITSA is currently due to commence from April 2024.
All MalgraBooks packages will be compliant for this service.

Penalty Points and Charges will apply if your submissions are late. Don’t get caught out!

Three simple steps...

Currently, only annual figures are required to HMRC – but a new quarterly step will be added as well.

That means there will be 4 mini-returns sent through the year, with details of your income and expenses for each quarter. There’s then a ‘End of Period Statement’ (EOPS) for each source of income. For example, if you have employment and self-employment, you’ll have two of these to complete.

The good news is that our systems are ready to react to these new changes. There’s three simple steps you need to follow to remain compliant (and avoid penalties!)

Cloud Accounts System

Create and develop your own business accounts within our Cloud System. Access your records anytime, anywhere – and keep up to date with your record keeping. Our system will automatically prompt you to keep up to date

Check and confirm Quarterly Figures

After entering your relevant data, it’s just a few clicks and our system will generate the relevant quarterly figures for you. Once you’re happy, and after some quick checks they’re sent to HMRC electronically

Annual Declaration

Once the end of the year is here, you’ll prepare the final figures after all four quarterly returns have been done – and ensure any final amends are made. Finally, our system will then submit your annual End of Period Statement (Tax Return) direct to HMRC
