How MTD ITSA will affect you

Both you and your clients need to use MTD compatible software to submit tax returns and store digital records. While this brings challenges across workflows for accountants and bookkeepers, by using Sage Accounting, you can easily meet key requirements and leave no clients behind.

  • Go Digital: Record, sort and report for Self Assessment preparation. The new Individual plans from Sage Accounting mean you can throw away the shoebox and get your clients to keep digital records on the go. 
  • Send periodic updates: With client records digitised you can easily send a summary of income and expenses to HMRC every quarter for each source of business income.
  • Declare annual income: Send an End of Period Statement (EOPS) for each source of business income and submit a Final Declaration (FD) to complete your client’s Self Assessment 

Sage Accounting including the new Individual plans is available through Sage for Accountants – the platform for managing both client and practice subscriptions, recognised by HMRC as MTD ITSA compatible.
