See how we can help you with Making Tax Digital

A promotional graphic showing discounts on accounting software for NFU members

To help you comply with HMRC's Making Tax Digital requirement for VAT reporting from April 2022, we've negotiated special deals with two software providers. 

Making Tax Digital for VAT reporting will be mandated by HMRC from April 2022 for businesses below the VAT turnover threshold of £85k.

What do the changes mean for me?

If this applies to you, it means that you will need to keep your financial records in a digital format and submit a VAT return that links back to those records (unless they meet the criteria for exemption and you apply to HMRC for it ahead of the requirement becoming mandatory).

Exemptions are available for those deemed to be genuinely digitally excluded by reason of age, disability, location, religion, or other reasons.
