Find software suppliers for sending Income Tax updates

Find out which software packages support the Making Tax Digital pilot if you're an agent, or are self-employed.

Overview

If you sign up to the Making Tax Digital pilot you’ll need a software package that lets you send regular Income Tax updates to HMRC.

If you’re an agent firm and you sign clients up to the pilot you’ll need one that lets you send these to HMRC on their behalf.

You’ll need this software to keep records of income and expenses, either for yourself or on behalf of your clients. If you’re already using software to keep records, check with your supplier when it will be ready to allow you to send updates to HMRC throughout the year.
