Making Tax Digital – implementation deadline extended
The government’s Making Tax Digital scheme has been delayed and extended, because of the coronavirus pandemic
Making Tax Digital will eventually require that businesses, landlords and individuals would record income and expenses with HMRC digitally on a much more regular basis, using approved software.
The initial plan was delayed because of Brexit preparations however, changes for VAT registered businesses with a turnover of more than £85,000 were implemented from April 2019. Further implementation has been delayed since then.
The new dates
On 21 July the Treasury announced new dates for the scheme:
- All registered traders will need to be compliant with Making Tax Digital rules for the first return on or after April 2022
- Self employed individuals and landlords with a turnover of more than £10,000 will need to be compliant for the next accounting period on or after 6th April 2023
