Making Tax Digital

Making Tax Digital (MTD) came into effect on 1 April 2019. Initially this applies to VAT-registered businesses, with a turnover in excess of the VAT threshold, which are required to keep business accounting records in a digital format.

This requires the use of HMRC compatible and approved software to submit quarterly data to HMRC. The option to use the Government Gateway to submit accounting records will cease.

There are many different stages to be rolled out for MTD, which will eventually mean all submissions will be required in a digital format, from VAT returns to self assessments.

To make these reporting changes as smooth and painless as possible, we want to assist you and your business to transition from existing bookkeeping and accounting processes to digital connected accounting software. We are experienced in supporting clients in the transition from keeping manual accounts to digital software.

Software training

Does your accounting software cause stress rather than making life simple? Do you know how to access the right information for your business at the right time?

We know, understand and train our clients in all the most popular desktop and cloud-based packages. We are Xero Certified Advisors, however, we are happy to work with you on the software of your choice.

Many of our clients use cloud-based software, which means we can work more collaboratively with them. We can solve problems quickly and easily and our clients have a faster, clearer picture of their financials.

Training usually takes place over three to four sessions, with practical data entry exercises to complete between sessions.
