FreeAgent and Making Tax Digital

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is a key Government initiative that aims to overhaul and digitise the UK tax system. It’s important for small businesses to adhere to the latest MTD rules to avoid any fines or penalties from HMRC.

MTD will have a big impact on how many small businesses maintain their accounts and submit their returns to HMRC. But with this change comes opportunity and switching to MTD-compliant accounting software such as FreeAgent offers significant benefits.

The rollout of MTD is ongoing, but the first stage came into effect in April 2019. From that date, all VAT-registered UK businesses with a turnover higher than the VAT registration threshold must use MTD-compatible software to file their VAT returns, and digitally store and financial records relating to this. As of April 2022, all VAT-registered businesses must follow this process.

The next major milestone comes in April 2026 when landlords and self-employed people with an income over £50,000 a year must follow MTD rules for income tax. From April 2027 this will also apply to landlords and self-employed people with an income above £30,000.

FreeAgent accounting software gets you ahead of the curve with MTD. It’s already approved by HMRC for MTD for income tax self-assessment and more than 600,000 MTD VAT returns have been filed using FreeAgent. As MTD continues to roll out, using FreeAgent will ensure that you remain fully MTD-compliant.
