Accountants: Why Your Landlord Clients Need To Be Using Cloud Accounting Software

With MTD fast approaching, digital record keeping software for your landlord clients isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have.

Making Tax Digital

Making Tax Digital for Income Tax Self Assessment (MTD for ITSA) has been delayed and will now be phased in from April 6th 2026 and will affect landlords and self-employed individuals earning above £10,000.

Under these new regulations, landlords must keep up-to-date digital records of their taxable income and business expenses and employ approved software to make regular quarterly updates to the HMRC as well as a final end-of-year statement.

With the implementation of MTD, software for digital record keeping isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have. This also presents an opportunity for many landlords to upgrade their processes and tools to help save themselves time throughout the year and increase their financial oversight.
