New consultations launched

Apr 14, 2020


A number of consultations have been recently launched.

As announced on Budget day, HMRC has now published a call for evidence on raising standards in the tax advice market. The call for evidence contains important considerations.  Currently the call for evidence is due to close on 28 May 2020.  However HMRC has advised that it will keep this situation under review, listen to feedback, and if necessary extend the deadline for responses. You can find the call for evidence on GOV.UK.  It includes questions on: 

  • the market for tax advice and tax services; 
  • the characteristics of good and bad agents; 
  • the impact of current government interventions; 
  • international comparisons; 
  • consumer protection; and  
  • possible approaches to raising standards
