What is a VAT return?
A VAT return is a tax form you file to show how much VAT you are due to pay HMRC. Your VAT return should contain your total sales and purchases for the period, the amount of VAT you owe and the amount you can reclaim, and what your VAT refund is.
What is Making Tax Digital?
Making Tax Digital (MTD) means you are no longer able to keep and submit manual VAT records and returns. Instead, HMRC will only accept VAT returns sent using software that supports Making Tax Digital for VAT.
Since 1 April 2019, MTD for VAT is to become compulsory for VAT registered businesses making annual taxable turnover of over £85,000. For all other VAT registered businesses this comes into effect from 1st April 2020.
What happens if my taxable VAT turnover is below the VAT MTD threshold?
If your business has a taxable turnover below the VAT threshold you can still sign up for MTD voluntarily. HMRC is encouraging businesses with a taxable turnover below the VAT threshold to sign up so they can also benefit from MTD. Businesses can also sign up for MTD for Income Tax. This means, subject to your business type, you can further streamline your business processes.
Software will help you stay on top of business record keeping, allowing you to better understand how your business is performing.
We can advise on the correct software solutions to help you keep track of this important tax liability.
