Digital tax Returns – Are You Ready?

With the passage of time, HM Revenue & Customs is moving towards digital tax real-time information. In 2014, payroll became real time and now other taxes are moving in the same direction. This means that the businesses will have to report submit their accounts every three months. The higher level of compliance will be burden for many businesses and if not dealt appositely it may result in high penalties.

April 2017, will be the last tax return year for many businesses. In 2018, businesses, self-employed people and landlords with an annual turnover above the VAT threshold will have to start using digital tax. In 2019 this will extend to businesses, self-employed people and landlord with turnover between £10,000 and VAT threshold. Later on, corporation tax and VAT will also be filed using digital tax.
