"If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way"

Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr


"Ruth is simply amazing! She is so incredibly knowledgeable and highly skilled yet explains my accounts to me in such a simple way so I can understand them! My accounts were in a mess when I first met Ruth and now they're sorted in a way that I could never have imagined and she has easily steered me through registering with VAT and submitted my returns without me having to worry about them. Ruth has taken a huge burden from me - thank you so much! I highly recommend Ruth!"

MTD Ready

What is Making Tax Digital?


Making Tax Digital (MTD) is a key part of the government's plans to make it easier for individuals and businesses to get their tax right and keep on top of their affairs. HMRC's ambition is to become one of the most digitally advanced tax adminstrations in the world. 

Making Tax Digital for VAT

From April 2022 all VAT-registered businesses are required to sign up to MTD and use compatible software to keep their VAT records and submit their VAT returns.  

Making Tax Digital for Income Tax Self Assessment (ITSA)

HMRC has recently announced a delay to MTD for ITSA and it will now be introduced from April 2026. It will also be a more gradual rollout than previously planned, initially applying to landlords and self-employed individuals with annual business or property income above £50,000. It is anticipated that those earning over £30,000 will be in scope from April 2027. 

The good news is that both Xero and Quickbooks are MTD compliant as are many other cloud-based accounting packages.
