BTCSoftware News and Updates on Making Tax Digital (MTD)

BTCSoftware is proud to be a very active member of the software developer community HMRC consults as they test new functionality in Making Tax Digital (MTD)’s creation. And as these new developments are finalised, we incorporate them into our software to coincide with them becoming live at HMRC. We also have practitioners already working with the pre-population data being fed into our solutions from HMRC’s MTD pilot.

Here you will find updates of the latest developments and news from our work with HMRC, and also noteworthy articles on MTD in the press we thought are of interest.

The Making Tax Digital Journey

Making Tax Digital (MTD) has created much angst and debate in the accountancy practice market to say the least. Rest assured though that the team at BTCSoftware are currently working with HMRC and have done since the introduction of the concept.

Our involvement with HMRC enables us to remain fully up to date with the changes as they are released. We will continue this proactive working partnership with Brigid McBride OBE (Deputy Director, HMRC Digital Service), Lee Hawksworth (Head of Software Developer Collaboration at HMRC) and their teams.

It is important to stress that even HMRC’s plans are not finalised or even close to being fully defined, but, needless to say the BTCSoftware team are following HMRC’s MTD programme’s every movement.
