HMRC will launch testing for making tax digital for income tax self assessment (MTD ITSA) on 22 April.

Director of MTD Craig Ogilvie has written to agents saying they will soon be able to sign up to testing. He said: ‘We want to ensure that this service meets the needs of you and your clients. To support this we are expanding our testing programme criteria for MTD ITSA. You will be able to sign up your clients from 22 April 2024. Taking part will involve using software compatible with MTD to keep digital records and submit quarterly updates. This will give you the opportunity to get ahead of MTD changes with selected client(s) before it becomes mandatory with access to our dedicated MTD customer support team.’

Agents who wish to participate will need an agent services account (ASA) before signing up to MTD ITSA.
