Why Choose Pineapple to Complete Your VAT Returns?

From April 2022, all limited companies, sole traders, and landlords registered for VAT are required to use HMRC-compliant accounting software for submitting their VAT returns. And from 6th April 2024, this requirement will be extended to Income Tax, if you earn over £10,000. So, it is advisable to switch to compliant software as early as possible to ensure you’re ready for Making Tax Digital.

At Pineapple, we’re ahead of the curve when it comes to the Making Tax Digital initiative by HMRC. As Xero Advisors, our cloud-accounting software supports MTD for VAT, so your business will be always compliant with this new government initiative.

In addition to this, our team of digital chartered accountants have a wealth of experience and expertise to help you comply with your VAT obligations. Your dedicated accountant will evaluate if you are on the most beneficial VAT scheme for your business, and advise switching if it is more tax-efficient for you.
