MTD - What if I exceed the VAT registration threshold temporarily?

Created on  | Last modified on 


This guide explains what you need to do to comply with the requirements of Making Tax Digital (MTD) when you reach the VAT registration threshold.


Once you've reached the VAT registration threshold you must comply with the requirements of Making Tax Digital (MTD). This is still the case if your taxable turnover subsequently falls below the threshold, unless you meet one of the other exemptions detailed in the HMRC VAT Notice 700/22: Making Tax Digital for VAT.

NOTE: From 1 April 2022, all VAT registered businesses must sign up for MTD for VAT, even if their taxable turnover is below the VAT registration threshold.
