Since the pilot of the Making Tax Digital for VAT service was opened up in mid-October, the number of businesses joining has been growing. Daily take-up during this pilot stage is now more than 60 businesses per day. Businesses will need to join the new service in time to send HMRC their VAT return information before their first deadline after April. For the majority who file quarterly that will be by 7 August 2019 at the earliest. HMRC is continuing to issue letters to all businesses in scope inviting them to join early, so that they can test the service before mandation.
