The Ins And Outs Of Making Tax Digital

The UK government is undertaking a huge initiative to digitise the tax system. It aims to bring changes to record-keeping and reporting requirements when dealing with VAT submissions and deadlines. Making Tax Digital is supposed to be an easier way to manage and do taxes and also enables businesses to manage their taxes better, in a more efficient way. The changes need to be implemented if you are registered for Income Tax Self Assessment and have a gross taxable income above a certain amount. There are a few cases where you can be exempted from Making Tax Digital, your accountants should be able to enquire to see if you are eligible for an exemption. All these changes and requirements can be tough to keep up with. When navigating unfamiliar territory like this it is best to seek professional services from registered tax accountants.
