Making Tax Digital in the UK

Making Tax Digital is the UK's digital VAT reporting legislation effective as of April 1, 2019.

Get Ready for e-Reporting in the UK

MTD will be extended to the VAT-registered population, those with turnover below the £85,000 VAT threshold, for their first VAT return period starting on or after 1 April 2022.

As of April 1, 2022, businesses below £85,000 in turnover subject to VAT must, on the one hand, file their VAT returns digitally, and on the other hand, submit them to HMRC electronically via API, with no manual intervention. 

The aim is to better control tax evasion and fraud and reduce errors made in manually processed documents. EDICOM's MTD solution has been approved by HMRC as a digital VAT registration and bridging software.
