To comply with the incoming Making Tax Digital (MTD) legislation, rolling out officially in April 2026, businesses and self-employed truckers must digitally manage their bookkeeping, Payroll and submission of their company or personal returns.
While it will soon be law, using accounting software is currently fully optional. The benefit of using the software now is that truckers can say goodbye to lots of manual work while knowing they’re prepared well in advance of April 2026. Ensuring everything is kept digitally will also help you if HMRC ever decides to audit you or your company.
Below we’ve outlined the features and benefits of some of our favourite MTD-approved accounting software, suitable for truckers themselves or those working within a business in the trucking industry.

With QuickBooks accounting software, you can manage your payroll and expenses at the click of a button. Their jargon-free guides provide support to match their top-quality agent support, so you can rest assured knowing they’ll help you every step of the way.
