MTD: Making Tax Digital Delay

Updated: Feb 13, 2023



The UK has decided to delay Making Tax Digital (MTD), this is aimed to modernise the tax system we use, requiring businesses and individuals to submit their taxes online.


More time has been given to HMRC, tax agents and taxpayers to familiarise them self with the change. This is due to an issue within the governments IT system and also the lack of awareness from the UK Tax payer.
