tax-blog.jpgWith the self-assessment tax deadline now just days away, many businesses will need to pay the second installment of their self-assessment tax bill.

In the first half of the year, HMRC reported that the highest number of returns were submitted on Friday 29th January, just two days before the January deadline. The race to submit returns close to the deadline date highlights that HMRC’s new digital campaign, 'Making Tax Digital’ is essential for many businesses.

According to HMRC, 86% of self-assessment tax returns are now made online.

Making Tax Digital

Released in late 2015, the Making Tax Digital’ campaign aims to simplify the tax process for many small businesses by using ‘four foundations’:

  1. Businesses won’t need to re-submit company information
    Any information HMRC holds on their accounts can be accessed at anytime

  2. Real-time reporting
    Businesses should not have to wait until the end of the tax year or even longer before knowing how much tax they should pay

  3. Tax in one place
    By 2020, users will be able to see all their financial information in one place. HMRC have compared the system to an ‘online banking account’

  4. Individual taxpayers to go digital
    Delivering digital access to all individual taxpayers

What our customers say

We could not have been happier. Banks as usual were a nightmare - they took over six weeks to eventually refuse for vague reasons unexplained. LDF were professional, helpful, friendly, and best of all, fast.
