Making Tax Digital: What Are the Due Dates for the First VAT Return?
The Making Tax Digital deadline has finally arrived. As of 1st April 2019 all VAT registered businesses, with an annual turnover of £85,000 or more, are required to keep their records digitally and submit their VAT returns using an MTD compatible software.
Below is a handy table of when your first MTD compliant VAT return will need to be filed.
|VAT Return Dates||First MTD Return Due Date|
|1st April – 30th June 2019||7th August 2019|
|1st May – 31st July 2019||7th September 2019|
|1st June – 31st August 2019||7th October 2019|
Obviously, if you submit monthly VAT returns you are one of the lucky ones who get to go first and submit via MTD compliant software by 7th June 2019!
