Making Tax Digital (MTD) is an HMRC initiative designed to make sure the UK tax system is effective, efficient and easier for taxpayers.
Making Tax Digital for business (MTDfb) begins on 1 April 2019 with the first phase of this is MTD for VAT.
From that date, VAT-registered businesses above the threshold of £85k will have to keep digital records and submit VAT returns using Systematics or compatible systems. HMRC lists Systematics as a software that is compatible with MTD for VAT.
Other elements of Making Tax Digital, like as income and corporation tax, have been postponed until April 2020 at the earliest.
