When does Making Tax Digital for VAT start?

When does Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT start?

MTD for VAT first came into effect in April 2019 for VAT-registered businesses with a taxable turnover above £85k.

From April 2022, all VAT-registered businesses must follow MTD requirements, regardless of turnover.

This means you need to keep digital VAT business records and file returns using MTD-compatible software, such as Xero, from April 2022 (unless you have an exemption).

Making Tax Digital will apply to income tax and corporation tax in the future.
