From 1 April 2022, all VAT registered businesses must file digitally through Making Tax Digital, regardless of turnover.

Are you signed up to file your VAT returns digitally from 1 April?

If your business is VAT registered, it will need to file VAT returns directly from MTD compatible software. Within the software, there should be a digital record of daily takings, business expenses and ideally (although not essential) the business bank account transactions.

HM Revenue & Customs have already started implementation of MTDfV, however, the first phase introduced a couple of years ago was only necessary if your VAT registered business had a turnover above the VAT threshold, currently £85,000.

If your business is VAT registered but has a turnover below the VAT threshold of £85,000 it will become mandatory for the first VAT return period starting on or after 1 April 2022, so if you have a VAT return quarter ended 30 April, your first MTD VAT return would be the quarter ended 31 July 2022.
