Getting Ready For Making Tax Digital

Have you heard about the changes HMRC wish to make to the tax system? HMRC are planning to transform the system to a digital platform, which means that you will need to submit your return digitally. The changes also bring in the requirement to submit quarterly statements and an end of year submission. This is expected to come into effect from 6 April 2018 and it will have a phased approach. Search ‘Making Tax Digital’ to learn how the change will affect you.

SimpleTax is already helping you to make the transformation – we have been submitting returns digitally to HMRC for over five years – way ahead of the game. And, our innovative mobile app allows you to scan and record income and expenses directly into your return, storing an image of your scan within your SimpleTax account and not on your mobile device – freeing up precious phone memory and allowing you to access your images wherever you are.
