From 1 April 2021, over 1 million UK VAT registered businesses face new Making Tax Digital for VAT (‘MTD’) obligations, backed by the threat of penalties for the first time. The changes include imposing digital book keeping and the complete digital journey on taxpayers, and prohibiting any manual posting or 'copying & pasting' in spreadsheets.

Join Richard Asquith, VP Global Indirect Tax, and Ruby Buckland, Director at Avalara as they revisit what the MTD Phase 2 rules mean for UK VAT registered businesses.

They'll also be covering some of our frequently asked questions, including:

  • What is MTD and what are the Phase 2 requirements?
  • What businesses need to do to meet the digital recordkeeping requirements
  • What the HRMC does and doesn't class as a digital link 
  • What extensions are available to the April 2021 timeframe and how to qualify.
