Making Tax Digital
(See 'MTD News' for information on joining the MTD 'Public' Pilot)

Making Tax Digital for VAT will come into effect from April 2019. From that date, businesses with a turnover above the VAT threshold (currently £85,000) will have to Keep their records digitally (for VAT purposes only), and Provide their VAT return information to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) through Making Tax Digital (MTD) functional compatible software.

However, there will be a 'Soft Landing' period for 12 months whereby HMRC will not impose financial penalties against those businesses that do not fully comply with the legistlation.

For information, HMRC has removed the requirement for businesses to submit transactional level (Supplemental information). Therefore, businesses only need to submit VAT Returns that contain the 9-box totals. HMRC currently has no plans to introduce a mandatory requirement to submit Supplemental information.

NJT offers a 'Bridging' software solution, named the 'NJT VAT Return Manager (MTD)', for submitting MTD compliant VAT Returns to HMRC. Prepared VAT Returns can be imported from a variety of systems. (See table below for a full list of currently supported systems).
Please Note: Additional systems will be considered on a request basis. However, Systems will need to have the facility to export VAT Returns to either a Text based file or an Excel file, in a consistent format and layout.
