Making Tax Digital for Income Tax Self Assessment (MTD ITSA)

As a sole trader or landlord the way that you have to submit your personal financial information to HMRC is changing. 

From April 2026 any self employed business owner or landlord with a total annual income of £50,000 or more will have to submit quarterly income and expenditure updates to HMRC, an end of period statement and a final declaration. This will replace the current end of year tax return.


Your financial records will also need to be maintained in digital format, ideally using software which is approved by HMRC. Keeping paper based records alone will no longer be allowed.

This is a significant change to the UK tax system and one that it's vital you are ready for.
