Making Tax Digital for VAT
If you are a business owner, then you should be made aware of the impeding shift to digital tax. This monumental change did want HMRC to completely transition to digital tax from 2020. However, whilst this has been altered to “from not earlier than 2020 for other taxes”, the VAT regime will move into this system as from 1st April 2019 for most vat registered businesses, with a turnover over the current registration threshold of £85000.
This means that the current submission platform will not be available from that date for qualifying businesses and instead they will need to transfer to the new digital platform. We will deal with this change for our clients, to ensure they are ready, although our vat clients and many others, are all set up on cloud accounting and already comply with the digital system. For more information, VAT notice 700/22 explains the new regulations.
Therefore, by working closely with us, we can ensure:-
** Clients are ready for this shift, through online accounting and live bank transaction feeds.
** More efficient working, taking away onerous and duplication of data entry.
** Quicker production of information for clients to utilise.
** More interaction between us and our clients, so that we keep in touch more frequently.
If you use other online accounting systems, we can simply import it into QuickBooks Online or, if preferable, we can just accommodate your current system into our Practice.
We are now committed to Making Tax Digital!
