MTD compliance updates
Kim Hau asseses the results of a Thomson Reuters survey into how firms are preparing for MTD.Companies are still unsure how to prepare for Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT, according to a recent Thomson Reuters survey of UK tax professionals. MTD is the latest step in HMRC’s aim to move towards a digital relationship with customers and become “the most digitally advanced tax administration in the world”.
Asked about the status of their MTD implementations, 70% of the 146 tax and accounting professionals surveyed said they had developed plans, but not started implementation.
Furthermore, 37% of respondents will now hold fire on changing policies until they hear more from HMRC about the revised October 2019 deadline for “businesses with complex requirements”.
