Are you ready for the impact Making Tax Digital will have on your practice and VAT-registered clients? 

By April 2019, 89% of businesses will have to change the way they submit VAT. This is the biggest change in UK VAT legislation in recent history and means that businesses above the VAT threshold (currently £85,000) will need to submit their returns through commercial software.

Access our free on-demand webinar here to help prepare your practice for the changes ahead. We cover everything you need to know to be ready for April 2019, including:

  • Evaluating your client base
  • Guidance on building an MTD action plan
  • Solution mapping tips to match up your clients with the right software for them (and you)

Read our latest advice on Making Tax Digital

Sage Advice is your go-to resource for insights on Making Tax Digital. Here’s our latest post on HMRC’s tips to get your practice and clients ready for Making Tax Digital now. 

Sage are proud to work with the ICB as the headline sponsor of the ICB Summit 2018, and enjoyed being headline sponsor of the Inspire tour 2018.

A personal note from Julia Wedgwood (Insight Lead, Sage and winner of ICB's Luca Award for 2018 Personality of the Year)

“It was an amazing experience being part of the ICB Inspire tour and I thoroughly enjoyed being part of this on my #ICBsecondment.  I truly believe that the role of the ICB Bookkeeper in the MTD initiative is critical. Every event I attend with accountants, I am told how important good bookkeepers are and they can be hard to find.  Well I found hundreds being on tour with the ICB! At Sage, we are 100% committed to working with bookkeepers and will shortly be launching an ICB Cloud Bookkeeper offering and having a dedicated area for you on the Sage University”. 

Sage want to thank you for attending and share all the latest news and insights that are available to ICB bookkeepers.
