How you manage your VAT is changing…
Digital accounts will be mandatory, you will have to file all your VAT returns using Government approved software, so now is the time to take your business online and make it work for you before the deadline.
…will you be ready?
So what does it mean for you and your business…
Making Tax Digital, the Government’s initiative “to simplify things for businesses” and generate £1.9 billion for the tax man has changed a number of times since it was first announced. BUT now with the first big date only just around the corner, you can’t ignore it and hope it will go away anymore.
By April 2019 all businesses with a turnover above the VAT threshold (currently £85,000) and those voluntarily declare VAT, will have to submit their quarterly VAT returns via Making Tax Digital software (ACTIVUS) NOT the current Government Gateway.
Your business must have government approved cloud accounting software (ACTIVUS) in place in order to file your VAT returns after April 2019.
Don’t leave it until the last minute…
With over 2.6 million SME’s all having to submit their quarterly VAT returns via making tax digital software in 2019, there’s a lot of scope for something to go wrong.
Your business is at risk of surcharges and penalty payments from HMRC if you don’t submit your VAT return on time or you don’t pay the right VAT amount by the deadline.
Why take the risk?
Start now… moving onto ACTIVUS couldn’t be easier.
