Are you ready for VAT changes in the U.K. due to Making Tax Digital?

How to get tax compliant by 1 November 2022

As of 1 November 2022, all U.K. VAT-registered businesses must sign up for Making Tax Digital (MTD) and start using MTD-compatible software to file returns. Businesses that fail to do so will be hit with a default surcharge or late submission penalties and interest. Now is the time to make sure you’re compliant.

The only exception to this will be digitally excluded businesses that can continue to use an online VAT account. But again, time is running out for these businesses to apply for an exemption from using software.

In this webinar, join Alex Baulf, Senior Director of Global Indirect Tax at Avalara, to learn how your business can continue to file U.K. VAT returns and what support is available to meet the November deadline.

We’ll cover:

  • How to sign up for MTD
  • What’s considered MTD-compatible software
  • The future of the U.K. VAT scheme
