The government and HMRC have begun the roll out of the new tax regime, which is commonly referred to as Making Tax Digital.

VAT registered businesses with turnover over £85k are already required by law to keep their financial records digitally and report their VAT figures electronically. The government plans to roll this out to most other businesses and most other taxes shortly.
