So, what’s MTD all about?

On this site we focus on the impact of MTD for Plumbers, Gas Engineers, Electricians, Builders and other small and mobile businesses. We also explain about MTD Software. Please go ahead and look at the frequently asked questions (FAQ) below.

Making Tax Digital is the most fundamental change to the way UK tax is administered for many years. Deadlines have already been put back a couple of times and now there is a lot of pressure on HMRC to get on with it.

MTD is a rolling program which will run for several years. Over a period of years, all tax reporting and calculations will be subsumed by the MTD project and businesses will be forced to keep digital records and generate their tax returns directly from these records.

This site is brought to you by Powered Now. Our easy-to-use and powerful app runs on iPhones, iPads, Android smartphones and tablets, Macs and PCs. Using Powered Now you can be fully MTD compliant.
