The 7th of August 2019 an important date if you are VAT registered!
Following a new initiative recently launched by HMRC, the majority of VAT registered businesses must keep digital records and file their VAT return using HMRC recognised software digitally.
The 7th of August will be the first filing date as this initiative started on the 1st of April. It may be a good idea to:
- Check you are using HMRC recognised software, check with the HMRC website or consult your provider if in doubt
- Register with HMRC for MTD otherwise you will be unable to submit your return
Please do not leave this to the last minute as with other services, HMRC sites can become a little congested if everyone tries to do this on the last day.
