QuickBooks Pro 2015 and MakingTax Digital-

Hi, I have QuickBooks Pro 2015 desktop on my computer and do bookkeeping on it for 3 clients. I just need the bookkeeping not payroll and so far it is filing VAT online to HMRC. However do i really need to change it for Making Tax Digital if it's filing VAT every quarter? 

I just feel everyone is pushing the online or monthly desktop accounts package and it's also very expensive to change.

Thanks for any help.


If you are already making vat returns using Qb then you already have Vat digitally recorded.

There is no need to change software currently but there are more issues later when Brexit kicks in. as Uk will be outside of EU..

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
