The Benefits of Making Tax Digital (VAT) Bridging Software for Keyloop Users
As the world becomes increasingly digitalised, tax authorities worldwide are embracing technology to streamline tax compliance processes.
Value Added Tax (VAT) return filing in the UK, in particular, has undergone a significant transformation since 2019, transitioning from traditional paper-based methods to digital solutions.
In order to comply with HMRC regulations, businesses must maintain digital records and submit their returns using a digital link. This means not manually altering the data from the digital records held on the key business systems.
This poses an issue for businesses in the motor trade with a requirement to make necessary adjustments (such as fuel scale charges and the movement of deposits from one quarter to another) before submitting their VAT return – but still needing to comply with HMRC’s regulations.
One bridging software solution stands out as a perfect solution for Keyloop DMS users: Magic Tax.
In this blog post, we’ll delve into the world of Magic Tax, bridging software that has revolutionised the way Keyloop users file their VAT returns digitally.
Making Tax Digital
Before we tell you what Magic Tax really is, let’s understand why VAT return filing has gone digital. The move toward digitalisation aims to enhance efficiency, accuracy, and transparency in tax reporting. Traditional manual methods are not only against HMRC regulations but also often lead to errors, delays, and higher administrative burdens for businesses and tax authorities alike.
To address these challenges, tax authorities (including HMRC in the UK) have introduced Making Tax Digital (MTD) initiatives in various countries. MTD mandates businesses to keep digital records of their transactions and submit VAT returns using approved software. While this modernisation comes with its fair share of benefits, it also poses challenges for businesses that are not technologically equipped or require a user-friendly compliant solution, such as Keyloop users.
Magic Tax emerges as the answer to these challenges, presenting a seamless bridge between businesses and HMRC. As a bridging software solution, Magic Tax enables businesses to digitally submit VAT returns by ingesting the VAT Summary Report from the Keyloop system in the exact format in which it is extracted.
With its user-friendly interface and intuitive features, Magic Tax eliminates the complexities of digital VAT return filing.
Key Features and Benefits
Magic Tax uses HMRC’s API (Application Programming Interface) to seamlessly communicate digitally with their MTD for VAT system, ensuring a smooth transition from manual to digital filing processes. This integration minimises disruptions to existing workflows, allowing businesses to adapt to digitalisation effortlessly.
