Making Tax Digital
Over the next few years, the UK Government is introducing the Making Tax Digital scheme. This initiative is intended to push businesses and sole traders to process their accounts online, digitally.
According to the UK Government, Making Tax Digital will ‘make the tax system more resilient and effective, to boost business productivity, and support taxpayers.’
Making Tax Digital will not change anyone’s tax liabilities or payments, only the way in which they are processed and stored.
Making Tax Digital for Landlords
So, how will Making Tax Digital affect Landlords?
Making Tax Digital for Income Tax Self-Assessment is being extended to every ‘business and/or property income over £10,000, including landlords, sole traders and partnerships, for their Income Tax obligations.’
These are the important dates for Making Tax Digital:
Making Tax Digital for VAT
Making Tax Digital for Income Tax
Making Tax Digital for Income Tax Self-Assessment
Making Tax Digital for Corporation Tax
Keep tax records digitally
After 6th April 2024, landlords will be required to keep digital records in ‘relation to their trading and property income chargeable to Income Tax and Class 4 NICs if their gross income from these income sources for a tax year exceeds £10,000.’
Digital quarterly updates
Provide digital quarterly updates and ITSA returns information to HMRC with digital software compatible with the MTD process. The dates for these quarterly updates are:
End of period statement and final declaration
Landlords affected by Making Tax Digital regulations will be required to finalise their income at the end of each tax year. As well as an EOPS your final declaration will replace your Self Assessment tax return.
