When to start using this app

Last updated: 08 Jun 2020

There is no right or wrong time to start using the app.

The best time to start is right at the beginning of the year. That way, you can just enter your income and expenses as you go.

If you start in the middle of the year, you will have the six previous months to go back and enter.

If you start using it at the and of the year, you would have the whole year still to enter. Although that’s nothing new since many drivers wait until the end of the year then rush to get them done in time. But you also won’t know what tax liability or NIC you will have to pay until the end of the year either!

Making Tax Digital starts next year (2021) by then it won’t matter since you will be submitting quarterly returns.
