Government pushing ahead with digital VAT changes

14 Mar 2019

Chancellor Philip Hammond has announced that he is pushing ahead with the proposed changes for VAT-registered businesses.

From 1 April, small businesses with a turnover above the 85,000 VAT threshold will be required to submit quarterly returns online.

Making Tax Digital (MTD) has generated much criticism for the potentially excessive burden it will have on the self-employed. However, despite calls to postpone or cancel the new rules, due to take effect just two days after the UK is scheduled to leave the European Union, government is pressing ahead with the plans.
