Making Tax Digital

From April 2019 VAT registered businesses will have to submit their VAT Returns digitally. You will no longer be able to manually enter the figures on HMRCs website. What does this mean for you?


You will need to use some form of software for record keeping. Whilst spreadheets are acceptable they will need to be linked to the HMRC API (application programming interface) through some sort of package. To date we have not identified such a package available in the market place and if such a package is not in place by April 2019 you will have no choice other then to start record keeping on bookkeeping software

If you are already completing VAT Returns on your own accounting software without any quarterly amendments then you need to make sure that the software is linked to the HMRC API. If you have quarterly amendments you will have to link your software to a spreadsheet and the HMRC API.

WHC can help you with the choice of appropriate software. We will still be able to submit VAT Returns for you but the overall costs may increase depending upon the software solution.


You need to ensure that your bookkeeping is satisfactory

We can help with your bookkeeping either by providing the service or by appropriate training.
