Making Tax Digital (MTD) is an HMRC initiative designed to digitise the UK tax system to make sure it is effective, efficient and easier for taxpayers.
Making Tax Digital for business (MTDfb) begins on 1 April 2019 with MTD for VAT. From that date, VAT-registered businesses above the threshold of £85k will have to keep digital records and submit VAT returns using compatible software.

For more information on MTDfV visit the HMRC Making Tax Digital for VAT information pages.
Other components of Making Tax Digital, such as income tax and corporation tax, have been placed on hold until April 2020 at the earliest.
