Sage 200 Making Tax Digital (MTD)

Is Sage 200 Making Tax Digital (MTD) Compliant?

Yes, Sage 200 is Making Tax Digital (MTD) compliant so you can submit your VAT returns online to HMRC. MTD is HMRC’s plan to digitise the tax system for VAT, Income Tax Self-Assessment and Corporation Tax for both businesses and individuals.

Its purpose is to make tax returns simpler and more efficient for everyone. It became law in April 2022 that all VAT registered businesses be able to submit returns online using their accounting software such as Sage 200 Standard or Sage 200 Professional.

But MTD goes further than this. It requires the use of software, such as Sage 200, for your accounting. There are an incredible number of benefits for businesses and individuals when it comes to digitalising taxes. For example, cash flow is improved because you have a good idea throughout the year how much tax you owe. And using software for accounting means you spend much less time on admin, and more time doing what’s best for your business.
