UK MTD for VAT digital links postponed to April 2021 due to COVID-19
Below is an extract from the HMRC email being sent today:
We understand that the impact of COVID-19 is creating extremely difficult times for all, and we are committed to helping in every way possible all those businesses facing unprecedented challenges.
Therefore, we are providing all MTD businesses with more time to put in place digital links between all parts of their functional compatible software. This means that all businesses now have until their first VAT return period starting on or after 1 April 2021 to put digital links in place.
The second phase imposed digital bookkeeping and journey, plus the imposition of VAT penalties. The launch date was 1 April 2020.
