Making Tax Digital (MTD) for Income Tax Self-Assessment (ITSA) has been delayed by a year to 2024/25.

The delay by the government is to give the self-employed and buy to let landlords an extra year to prepare for the digitalisation of Income Tax.

The deadline date will also allow HMRC more time for customer testing of the pilot system.

The start date for partnerships to join MTD for ITSA has been put back still further to the tax year beginning in April 2025.

There has been no change to the £10,000 per annum gross income threshold which means that most self-employed traders and buy to let landlords will be mandated to comply with MTD for income tax from April 2024.

“Making Tax Digital has been heavily scrutinised, mainly due to its tight timeframe,” said John Moorhouse, director at Ellis & Co Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers.

“This delay will help those who aren’t yet prepared for Making Tax Digital.”
