Making Tax Digital – Are you ready?

Making Tax Digital is the government plan to make it easier for individuals and businesses to get their tax right and to keep on top of their affairs, meaning the end of the annual tax return for millions.

APRIL 2019

From 1st April 2019 businesses above the turnover threshold of £85K will have to keep digital records and submit VAT returns.  You will no longer be able to submit manual returns.
