A MUST ATTEND event for anyone with a VAT registered business

From 1 April 2019, VAT registered businesses operating above the £85,000 threshold will be required to submit their VAT return to HMRC in a compliant digital format, as part of their Making Tax Digital programme (MTD).  To comply with the changes businesses may need to change or upgrade their existing accounting software system and those with manual systems will need an alternative. Businesses may also need to change the way they record transactions within the accounting software to comply with the "digital links" rules.

To help businesses understand what MTD means for them, we will be hosting MTD education workshops in Dunfermline and Edinburgh (similar to the RTI events we held a few years ago) covering:

    • What is MTD?
    • How does it affect my business?
    • What do I need to do to be compliant?
    • What happens if I get things wrong or don't comply?
    • What does the future hold?

We will also highlight suitable software solutions and those attending the workshops can request a free demonstration with our Tech Team. Even if you already use an online accounting platform, you may still need to change how you record and submit information to HMRC to remain compliant.

Time is running out. 


Don't leave understanding how the rules will affect your business until the last minute, as you may not have time to put in place the necessary software or new processes. We urge you to take advantage of these low-cost education workshops now as one-to-one advice will cost significantly more. If you require advice on which software solution is best for your business, please contact Partner Elaine Cromwell at ecromwell@thomsoncooper.com to arrange a consultation.
