What is Making Tax Digital?

Making Tax Digital is part of HMRC’s plans to bring UK tax into the digital age. It requires all VAT-registered businesses with a taxable turnover above £85K to keep records in a digital form and file VAT returns using Making Tax Digital-ready software (like QuickBooks). The legislation began on 1 April 2019.

Frequently asked questions

  • How do I know which desktop version I am using

    Within your current QuickBooks Desktop product, hit F2 on your keyboard to display the version year.

  • How do I know my data imported correctly?

    We do everything we can to make sure things are accurate so you don't have to do anything. But it is always a good idea to double check by running a Profit & Loss report, and Balance Sheet report on Accrual method, for all dates. Do this for both QuickBooks Online & Desktop and compare your balances to make sure things match.
