Provide better Making Tax Digital (MTD) support to your clients

Make your accountancy practice stronger in MTD with the help of Affinity Outsourcing

MTD is a UK government initiative rolled out to modernise HMRC’s tax system and make the tax process simpler and more efficient. Your clients’ tax information will be in one place (their digital account), and they’ll have to report their business activity during the year, uploading and updating data to the tax account in real-time. Given the complexity of MTD, it can be very exhausting for your clients to stay on top of things.

Similarly, working with them to digitise and update their records periodically is not easy for most accountants as it increases the workload considerably. We at Affinity Outsourcing work with all the commonly used HMRC-approved MTD-compliant cloud software and can help you to provide a seamless service for your clients throughout the process.

It may only be VAT records now, but the full roll-out will shortly follow, and we can ensure you are in total control at every step of the process. Our expert team can help and advise or even take over your record keeping. MTA VAT or ITSA – our accountants can handle it all.

Every UK business is required to automate processes, ensure compliance, and keep up with rapidly digitising tax authorities.

It’s your duty as an accountant to deliver the best possible support.

Leverage our MTD specialism.

Types of Making Tax Digital


MTD for VAT is mandatory for all VAT-registered businesses above the £85,000 threshold and those that have voluntarily registered for VAT. These businesses must keep records and submit their VAT returns digitally, using MTD software recognised by HMRC, for instance, Xero or Quickbooks.


MTD for Income Tax Self Assessment (ITSA) will roll out in April 2024, impacting sole traders and landlords with a gross income of over £10,000. Businesses and landlords who join MTD for Income Tax will need to send a quarterly summary of their business income and expenses to HMRC using MTD-compatible software.

Using Affinity Outsourcing has changed both my business and my lifestyle. I have an amazing work life balance and knowing that I have a back up plan if there is a reason why I can’t work has helped me enormously. The added value is that I have managed to increase my GRF and therefore the capital value of the business for my retirement without any stress. I cannot recommend this way of working highly enough.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the purpose of Making Tax Digital (MTD)?

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is a UK government initiative that digitises how businesses manage tax. It minimises the time taken to enter returns manually, makes filing taxes easier for businesses, and gives them better financial control. For more information on MTD, please contact our specialists.

Can spreadsheets be used for MTD VAT?

Yes, HMRC has confirmed that spreadsheets are a valid form of digital record-keeping under MTD VAT rules. However, as accountants work with multiple clients simultaneously, they're more susceptible to making mistakes while using spreadsheets. That's why it's best to use HMRC-approved software, such as QuickBooks or Xero. If your practice is struggling with MTD software, let us help you out.
