    Towards has no tense. – tchrist Jul 15 '18 at 23:09

At this point in time, the "s" is meaningless (it had meaning 1000 years ago).

Either one works fine; "towards" is supposed to be more British and "toward" more American, but both variants are used in both countries. See Google Ngrams.

  • +1 The first part is documented, fine. How do I know "but both variants are used in both countries"? And what of the Aussies; the others? – Kris Jul 16 '18 at 6:12
  • @Kris: Ngrams shows that both variants are used in both countries (with a reasonably high frequency). I don't know what Australia and India do. – Peter Shor Jul 16 '18 at 11:44
