What is MTD for Income Tax?

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is the government’s initiative to implement a fully digital tax system in the UK, whereby taxpayers keep digital records and use MTD-compatible software to make tax submissions electronically.

MTD for Income Tax will require affected clients to use MTD-compatible software to keep digital records and make regular tax submissions to HMRC. For landlords and self-employed individuals with a combined property/business income of £50,000 or more a year, MTD for Income Tax will come into effect on 6th April 2026 and will replace the existing process of submitting an annual Self Assessment tax return. From April 2027, it will apply to landlords and self-employed individuals with annual income over £30,000.

Will MTD for Income Tax affect me?

From 6th April 2026, MTD for Income Tax will apply to all landlords whose total property and/or business income is above £50,000 per year. It will apply to those with income above £30,000 per year from April 2027. Those affected will be required to use software like FreeAgent to:

  • keep records of their property and/or business income and expenses in a digital format
  • send quarterly updates of their property and/or business income and expenses to HMRC
  • finalise their property and/or business income and submit an end of period statement (EOPS) and final declaration (which will replace the annual Self Assessment tax return) to HMRC

When MTD for Income Tax comes into effect in April 2026, FreeAgent for Landlords will support these tax submissions. This means you’ll be able to use the software to generate the submissions automatically and then send them directly to HMRC.

MTD for Income Tax isn’t coming into effect right away. Why should I consider using FreeAgent for Landlords now?

While MTD for Income Tax won’t be implemented until April 2026, it’s a good idea to become familiar with the process of using software to manage your property finances before it becomes mandatory to do so. Signing up for FreeAgent for Landlords when it becomes available will give you ample time to get used to this new way of working.

With our experienced team of support accountants on hand to help, you’ll also learn how to get the most out of using FreeAgent for Landlords before you’re required to start making MTD for Income Tax submissions.
