Join us for an up to date insight on what “Making Tax Digital” is all about and how it could affect your business from 1st April 2019

What is Making Tax Digital?

Making Tax Digital is intended to bring the UK tax system into the 21st century by providing businesses with a modern, streamlined system to keep their tax records and provide information to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

The first to be affected will be small businesses and individuals with a turnover above the VAT threshold of £85,000, who will be required to keep digital records for VAT purposes from April 2019.

Why is HMRC introducing it?

Making Tax Digital is intended to help you better keep track of how much tax you owe – or how much you are due back – throughout the financial year.

Accurate Tax Information
Replacing paper-based bookkeeping with digital tax accounts will let you check the information HMRC holds about you is 100% correct.

Reduced Errors
Making Tax Digital’s new reporting function will allow HMRC will to look at your tax information almost immediately, reducing human error from data input.

Easier to understand
HMRC anticipates taxpayers will better understand how much tax is owed within the digital tax account – much like online banking.

Easier contact with HMRC
Making Tax Digital will make it easier for you to contact HMRC online via webchats and secure messages.

The AWWEsome business club is run on behalf of its members by Airedale Enterprise Services and is supported by FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) West Yorkshire
