Merry Taxmas

Dec 04, 2017

This month’s early Christmas present for tax enthusiasts was published last week on 1 December – the third Finance Bill of 2017, officially titled Finance (No. 2) Bill 2017-19. The Bill reflects draft legislation on many measures announced last month as part of the 2017 Autumn Budget. Explanatory notes have also been published.

The timing of the Bill’s passage through Parliament is not yet known – more light may be shed on this when the Government publishes its approach to tax making policy which is expected later this month. 

Also published last week were several policy papers and documents in respect of measures announced in the Autumn Budget together with newly opened consultations and consultation outcomes. We highlight these below:-
