With the introduction of Making Tax Digital (MTD), the way you handle your tax affairs needs to change. Switch to AccountsIQ cloud accounting software now to ensure you are fully compliant.
Making Tax Digital for Business will make dealing with tax a simpler and more efficient process for companies large and small. With cloud-based software enabling a live connection between accountants and HMRC, it will streamline the way businesses submit and access their tax data, improving accuracy and efficiency.
From April 2019, VAT-registered businesses with a turnover of more than £85,000 pa must begin to record and submit their VAT returns digitally. Then, from April 2021, the plan is for income tax and corporation tax to be included in the system. Accounting practices and Finance Directors will need to ensure that they are fully up to speed – and fast. HMRC are underwriting the digital transformation process and it’s important to ensure compliance.
40,000 businesses fall into one of the relevant HMRC categories for the deferred VAT registration date of October 1st 2019. Is your business part of this small minority of businesses with more complex requirements (such as those who are required to submit a group VAT registration)?
Older software, or on-premise software that’s installed on your computers, will require workarounds in order to comply with the new rules of Making Tax Digital for Business. This will not be ideal in the long run. Companies should be looking to futureproof their systems as HMRC will be looking to bring additional components such as Corporation Tax online by 2021.
AccountsIQ is one of the fastest-growing brands in the UK. A flexible solution that will adapt to your needs, our award-winning cloud accounting software is a futureproof tool for your changing business needs.
Switching from Sage 50: “Our decision to move away from Sage 50 was driven by inefficiencies which Sage couldn’t address; it took two people in my team one week each to update various schedules in Excel and then I would spend many hours compiling a reporting pack. AccountsIQ allows me to produce a custom reporting pack in just minutes.” Lee Camp, Finance Director, Salamanca Group
