HMRC is working with more than 150 software suppliers who have said they’ll provide software for Making Tax Digital for VAT in time for April 2019.
If your taxable turnover is above the VAT registration threshold you must follow the rules set out in VAT Notice 700/22 by 1 April 2019.
More than 40 of these suppliers have said they’ll have software ready during the first phase of the pilot, in which HMRC is testing the service with small numbers of invited businesses and agents. Other software suppliers will follow. The pilot will be opened up to allow more businesses and agents to join later in 2018.
HMRC is working with software suppliers in the pilot who have:
tested their products in HMRC’s test environment
already demonstrated a prototype of their software to HMRC
HMRC will update this list as testing progresses. Check with your existing software supplier to find out if they’ll be supplying suitable software before or after the pilot, or contact one of the following:
