Change, while often a good thing, can leave us feeling a little uneasy and wary – especially when it relates to something as critical and fundamental as your company’s taxes. That’s exactly what Making Tax Digital is focused on, but – although it means altering some of your processes – this is a change for the better.

But before we get into the ‘why,’ let’s tackle the ‘what.’ If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of Making Tax Digital, it’s essentially a government initiative which is mandating the switch from paper-based tax systems to an entirely digital one. This already applies to VAT, and will in future be a requirement for income tax, self-employment tax and corporation tax.

Here at McIntyre Stuart, we’re Quickbooks Certified ProAdvisors and can bring you up to speed with Making Tax Digital in no time, ensuring you’re compliant with the regulations before they’re fully rolled out.
