What is it?

Making Tax Digital for Income Tax Self Assessment (often known as MTD ITSA) is a new way of reporting earnings to HMRC. It's part of the government's flagship policy to modernise the UK's tax regime.

Who will MTD ITSA affect?

From April 2024 individuals with business and/or rental income over £10,000 per annum will need to make quarterly reports under MTD ITSA. This will affect most self-employed taxpayers with business or property income over £10,000 a year. There are limited exemptions, which must be applied for with HMRC.

What will change?

As part of the scheme, all sole trader businesses and self employed taxpayers who come under MTD ITSA will need to keep all business records digitally, using accounting software and file the submissions via MTD ITSA compatible software.

These submissions will be:

Quarterly updates which will need to be submitted to HMRC. These quarterly returns will consist of total sales and expenses that arise every three months. They will be required to be submitted on or before 5 August, 5 November, 5 February and 5 May every year.

End of period statements (EOPS) will have to be filed annually, on or before 31 January following the end of the relevant tax year and can only be made once all quarterly updates have been submitted. An EOPS allows you to finalise your business income for the period. It's how final adjustments to your accounts are made and any reliefs are claimed.

It's important to note that you need to submit the quarterly updates and EOPS for each source of business income. For example, if you are a sole trader earning £5,000 per year from your business and an additional £9,000 as rental property income, you will need to send quarterly updates and an EOPS for both sources of income.

Final declaration can be submitted once you have told HMRC about all of your sources of taxable income for the year.

What else do you need to know about MTD?

Since 6 April 2022, every VAT-registered business, regardless of turnover, has had to follow MTD VAT rules. Although there is plenty of time ahead of the 6 April 2024 mandatory MTD ITSA deadline, starting to keep digital records now can bring significant benefits to your business and will ensure a smoother transition to MTD ITSA.
