Making Tax Digital

Looking after life’s numbers.

Our accounting and financial services empower you and your business.

What is 'Making Tax Digital'?

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) plans to bring tax into the digital age with its ‘Making Tax Digital’ (MTD) initiative. This means that nearly every UK business will have to submit VAT returns using compliant online accounting software.

From 1 April 2019 businesses with a turnover above the VAT threshold (currently £85,000) will have to keep digital records in relation to their VAT compliance. Business owners will no longer be able to log into the HMRC website and type in their VAT figures. Instead they must move to electronic uploads from their accounting software package.

To help you become MTD compliant we offer a variety of online accounting software packages including Xero, Sage, QuickBooks, FreshBooks and more.

Online accounting benefits

As well as becoming compliant with the new HMRC regulations, online accounting, also known as ‘cloud based accounting’, offers many benefits:

  • Real time financial reporting. Auto-updated, real-time information about your company finances.
  • User friendly. Easy to use online dashboard, giving you visibility of your cash-flow at all times.
