MTD FOR INCOME TAX POSTPONED TO 2024/25


Having listened to stakeholder feedback from businesses and the accounting profession, the government have announced that they will introduce Making Tax Digital (MTD) for Income Tax Self-Assessment (ITSA) a year later than planned, in the tax year beginning in April 2024. This will give the self-employed and buy to let landlords an extra year to prepare for the digitalisation of Income Tax and allow HMRC more time for customer testing of the pilot system.

The start date for partnerships joining MTD for ITSA has been put back to the tax year beginning in April 2025.

There has been no change to the £10,000 per annum gross income threshold, which means that most self-employed traders and buy to let landlords will be mandated to comply with MTD for income tax from April 2024.
