Brexit HMRC MTD delays but VAT proceeds Apr 2019

Wed 6th Jun 2018

The UK’s HMRC has confirmed today that a number of features of its flagship Making Tax Digital programme will be hit by Brexit planning. However, VAT will go ahead from 1 April 2019.

A HMRC report sent to Parliament (Public Accounts Committee), lists the postponed efficiency plans, including:

  • The ending of the annual personal income tax return
  • Digitally declaring Gift Aid
  • Online registering for child benefit payments

However, the ambitious VAT plans around obliging the digital recording and reporting VAT liabilities goes ahead on 1 April 2019, as planned. A pilot is already underway.
