If you're self-employed or a property landlord, the Government just made an announcement that will affect you.

It's about Making Tax Digital for Income Tax - or MTD for short. It's the new way for self-employed people and landlords to be reporting your tax. You'll need to use software - and untied is already recognised by HMRC for this.

It was meant to be mandated from April 2023, but the new timetable means that it will not come in until a year later - in April 2024.

As we're ready and among the few software products recognised, you might expect untied to be disappointed that there's a delay. Actually we think it's the right choice - this gives everyone more time to make sure that everything works. We are calling on HMRC to ensure that the pace of development does not slow as a result of this extra time though.

untied users will be among the most ready for this - and will already be enjoying all the benefits that HMRC are seeking from MTD. Stuff like real time tax calculations. Streamlined filing. Automatic optimisation. No need to wait for MTD - it's here now! If you're not already a user, just pick your trial to sign up!
