Making Tax Digital and Sage Software

Posted on: September 13th, 2018 by Judith Mallen No Comments

Making Tax Digital is HMRC’s move to digitise tax. As from 1 April 2019, businesses with a turnover above £85k will have to submit VAT returns through the HMRC gateway using commercial accounting software. 

If you currently have Sage 50 software you will need to check if your software is MTD Compliant and if the software is not MTD compliant then you will need to upgrade. 

Please see below some information that will help you determine if the software is compliant.
