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.

MTD for VAT has been compulsory for all VAT registered businesses since 1st April 2019.
