And as we're Quickbooks certified, we can help you illustrate where money is spent, sources of income and other valuable information. It also means you can be ahead of Making Tax Digital, saving yourself pain and cost in the future.

You can rest assure the submission will be accurate, on time and easy for you to pay. If you're a sub-contractor yourself we'll ensure your deductions are recorded and your refund calculated and secured.

Making Tax Digital

Making Tax Digital is a HMRC initiative designed to bring the UK tax system online. 

 

You'll have your own personalised digital tax account and it will become easier for you to get your returns in on time and reduce the chance of getting fined.

Making Tax Digital begins on 1st April 2019 for VAT registered businesses above the threshold of £85k. You will have to keep digital records and submit VAT returns using compatible software, of which, HMRC lists QuickBooks as suitable for Making Tax Digital for VAT.

All other businesses need to be ready from April 2020 when other components of Making Tax Digital are introduced, such as income and coporation tax.
