Making Tax Digital is a government initiative that sets out a bold vision for a digital tax system to "make it easier for individuals and businesses to get tax right and keep on top of their affairs".
To help you guide your clients through the government's plans for Making Tax Digital, we’ve produced a concise guide on the initiative for small businesses and freelancers. It explains what Making Tax Digital is, what its objectives are and how it will affect the way taxpayers report information to HMRC in the future.
The guide also includes information on Making Tax Digital for VAT, which came into effect on 1st April 2019 for all businesses with VATable sales above the VAT threshold.
Once you’ve downloaded the guide, you can either email it to your clients or print it out and pass it on to them at your next appointment.
The content in this guide is based on HMRC's guides and resources and was last updated by FreeAgent in April 2019.
