Odoo is MTD ready...

Take Away The Pain Of Making Tax Digital Compliance

By Andy Scott • Managing Director

We get lots of questions about Odoo being MTD compliant.  In short, the answer is Yes.  

We use Odoo internally for all aspects of our business, from Expenses to MTD, from Projects to helpdesk.  Odoo accommodates the best UK business accounting practices as standard and has advanced features, functions, and flexibility for large companies, or smaller companies with sophisticated accounting needs.

Embracing Making Tax Digital

Like it or not, our tax obligations have changed.  We have no choice but to embrace them, and focus on the positives of discipline, visibility, and compliance.

Digitising tax seems to be working.  It speeds up the accounting process, moving away from error-strewn spreadsheets and scrabbling about for paperwork when our accountants ask for it!  It is a discipline and a necessary pain to deliver best practices in taxation for business.  We hear that it makes businesses more efficient, which it may.  But the fact is we have to do it by law – so let’s get on with it.

You may think we are a little late in enlightening the world that Odoo is MTD compliant, but we are simply reacting to the number of times we are asked.  Remember back to the panic stations of Year 2K compliance, the mysterious interpretations of GDPR compliance, then MTD, and next came Brexit.  Odoo is, no surprise, a resounding ‘YES’ to them all.  Ok, Y2k is now history; GDPR is simply a set of Odoo tools to help you in your compliance; MTD is a compliant file transfer of financial information for VAT and other tax calculations; Brexit paperwork is something we have addressed many times for our Odoo clients – and an area we will cover in more detail in a forthcoming blog.
