Making Tax Digital for VAT

Engage with Atos SAP UK&I to prepare for HMRC’s Making Tax Digital

What is Making Tax Digital?


Making Tax Digital (MTD) is a UK government initiative that sets out a vision to transformed tax system by 2020.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) states that the main goal of MTD is to make tax administration more effective, more efficient and simpler for taxpayers.

In July 2017, the government announced an amendment to the initial 2020 vision which meant, the first step towards the transformation and modernisation of tax is VAT.

From April 2019, companies who are VAT registered in the UK, with a turnover above the VAT threshold will be required to:

  • keep digital records for only for VAT purposes
  • VAT returns must have digital links to digital records
  • VAT return submissions must be done digitally via HMRC’s Making Tax Digital APIs (Application Programming Interface).
