HMRC postponed digital links for Making Tax Digital for VAT due to COVID-19
In the light of COVID-19 pandemic, HMRC has postponed the digital links requirements for Making Tax Digital (MTD) until April 2021 due to COVID-19.
Below is an extract of an e-mail from HMRC:
“We understand that the impact of COVID-19 is creating extremely difficult times for all, and we are committed to helping in every way possible all those businesses facing unprecedented challenges.
Therefore, we are providing all MTD businesses with more time to put in place digital links between all parts of their functional compatible software. This means that all businesses now have until their first VAT return period starting on or after 1 April 2021 to put digital links in place.”
As a result of this, businesses which would have needed digital links from 1 April 2020 will now have an extra year to prepare.
