What is functional compatible software?

Posted on 21 Mar 2019 - Making Tax Digital

Functional compatible software is a software program, or a set of software programs, products or applications, that must be able to:

  • Record and preserve digital records
  • Provide to HM Revenue & Customs information and returns from data held in those digital records by using the Application Program Interface (API) platform
  • Receive information from HMRC via the API Platform

If a set of programs is used, there must be a digital link between the pieces of software.
