Tax Software for the Construction Industry

Make your tax process more effective, efficient, and simple - without mistakes

If you’re a VAT-registered business, you’re now legally required to keep digital records for your tax returns and file them using software that’s compatible with Making Tax Digital (MTD). 

Errors and incorrect tax return submissions are estimated to cost the government more than £9 billion a year. MTD aims to address this issue by simplifying the UK tax system and moving it online, with quarterly or monthly tax returns and digital record-keeping. It’s being rolled out in phases, starting with MTD for VAT.

If you’re a UK VAT-registered business, you must use MTD-compatible software to file your returns and sign up for MTD. Here are the steps you need to take:

  1. Choose the right MTD-compatible software for your business 
  2. Check that the permissions allow the software to work with HMRC
  3. Maintain digital records for your VAT returns
  4. Sign up for MTD
  5. File your VAT returns using MTD-compatible software.

There’s a wealth of additional information available at GOV.UK, including how to apply for exemptions and software discounts.
