Slow roll-out damages MTD’s benefits

HMRC has admitted that its Making Tax Digital programme will end up costing businesses more than it saves them. Original forecasts said the scheme would save businesses £100m a year from 2021 but its annual report reveals there will be no cost savings and the extra work will end up costing firms £37m a year. HMRC said the change to its forecast was due to the fact that only companies with turnover of more than £85,000 will have to file returns digitally, whereas, initially, it was to include all businesses. Most of the savings from the scheme would have been made by companies below this threshold, HMRC said.
