Signing up to Making Tax Digital for VAT

VAT registered charities need to sign up (or ask their agent to do so) for Making Tax Digital – HMRC will not do this for you.

HMRC has published additional advice to help you sign up to MTD at the right time, and help HMRC make sure they are ready for the first digital return. The following questions are answered:

  • When should you sign up a business for MTD? Are there any restrictions
  • When do I need to submit my first digital return?
  • When is the right time to sign up?
