What is Making Tax Digital For VAT?

Making Tax Digital for VAT is a HMRC service that was introduced in April 2019 to help ensure businesses get their VAT right. Under the new rules, business figures need to be kept digitally and HMRC's online VAT submission interface can no longer be used.

If you record your business figures in Excel, Google Sheets, OpenOffice Calc or any other spreadsheet, or you use accounting software that is incompatible with Making Tax Digital for VAT, bridging software, such as Easy MTD VAT, must be used to submit VAT returns to HMRC.

What is Easy MTD VAT?

Easy MTD VAT is a super simple Windows application for businesses and agents. It enables users to view obligations, liabilities and payments for any number of businesses, and submit VAT returns to HMRC in compliance with Making Tax Digital for VAT.

VAT figures held in an Excel (xlsx, xls, xlsm) or comma-separated values (csv) file can be imported then submitted, meaning any business that uses a spreadsheet or non-compliant accounting software can use Easy MTD VAT as a bridging solution.

VAT obligations, liabilities and payments can be viewed for free and submitting a VAT return costs as little as £1.50.
