What is Making Tax Digital enabled software?

Created on  | Last modified on 


To comply with Making Tax Digital, your accounts software must have certain functionality defined by HM Revenue & Customs.


Making Tax Digital (MTD) enabled software is a software program or set of compatible software programs that can:

  • Record and preserve electronic records in an electronic form.
  • Provide to HMRC information and returns from the electronic records in an electronic form and by using the Application Programme Interface (API) platform.
  • Receive information from HMRC.

If more than one application is being used, data that flows between those applications must also be exchanged digitally.
