Why is Making Tax Digital happening?

HMRC loses £9bn each year on taxation errors, and they believe that's partly due to the way businesses declare their income - digital record keeping and automated VAT submissions will make the process easier and error-free.

Part of improving VAT means you'll need to record your transactions throughout your VAT period and send HMRC an automated nine box VAT return at the end of each period, directly from your software. It's a simpler, more efficient process that will be less disruptive to your business in the long run. 

What Making Tax Digital means to you?

Recent research has shown that moving to digital accounting software saves small-medium sized businesses £17,000 annually.

Digitising tax is a good thing. You'll no longer have to provide the same details twice. You'll get a real-time view of your tax so you're not taken by surprise when bills come in. Having all of your tax details in the one place makes everything simpler.
