In a new consultation HMRC has confirmed that Making Tax Digital (MTD) for corporation tax (CT) (MTD for CT) will not be implemented until 2026 'at the earliest'.

The consultation considers how the principles created for MTD could be established for companies within the charge to CT. It outlines the potential design of the MTD for CT system and provides companies with information in regard to what may be required of them following the introduction of MTD for CT.

HMRC is seeking feedback on the plans from companies and agents.

Commenting on the consultation, Tina Riches, Chair of the joint Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) and Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) Digitalisation and Agent Services Committee, said: 'We are disappointed that the consultation presupposes that most entities within the charge to CT should be within the scope of MTD before the costs and benefits arising to different parts of the population have been established.

'If a key purpose of MTD is to encourage taxpayers to become digital then it is not necessary to extend it to CT, as a large proportion of companies are VAT registered and so already in MTD for VAT, or using digital records anyway.'

The consultation runs from 12 November 2020 to 5 March 2021. The details can be found here.
