Making Tax Digital for VAT is here and we at M J Smith & Co successfully implemented this in April 2019. We are using the latest software including Xero and Quickbooks and other cloud-based technologies as well as in-house systems to link directly with HMRC for seamless integration into quarterly accounting.

HMRC wants to do more to help businesses get their tax right and these changes are a very important step in that direction. It will help businesses steer clear of avoidable errors, and give them a clearer view of their tax position in a year.
