Making Tax Digital (MTD for VAT)

HMRC has changed the way that VAT returns are submitted. UK VAT registered businesses with a taxable turnover of more than £85,000 must use the Making Tax Digital (MTD) service to submit their VAT returns.

From 1st April 2022, all UK VAT registered businesses must use MTD to submit their VAT returns, irrespective of taxable turnover.

Don't worry - you can use IRIS KashFlow (which is MTD compatible) to record and manage all your VAT related data, then submit your return directly to HMRC.

There are three key steps to this process.
