HMRC MTD VAT Returns – make sure you’re registered

MTD filing for VAT returns came into place April 1st 2019 for the majority of vat registered businesses with a taxable turnover over £85,000.

This is now being rolled out from the first VAT period starting on or after April 1st 2022 for all remaining VAT registered businesses. This will affect those below the £85,000 threshold not already operating MTD. These businesses will now have to:

  • Sign-up to MTD
  • Keep their records digitally (for VAT purposes only)
  • Submit their VAT return information to HMRC through MTD compatible software

Reviso is fully MTD compatible for VAT Return filing and you have full visibility of the reports and the HMRC submission confirmation once filed.
