There is a sense of very significant change for the tax system coming over the next few years. HMRC and government have been extremely active and a large volume of publications issued before the parliamentary recess address both measures that might be announced in the Autumn 2020 Budget and the longer term future of the tax system. This webinar from the Tax Faculty will provide a round up of all the measures that are under review and subject to consultation and how the faculty will be responding. The current tax landscape includes:• Digitalisation of the tax system• The extension of MTD for VAT to all traders from April 2022 and MTD for income tax becoming mandatory from April 2023• The possibility of ‘more timely’ tax payments• A review of the tax administration framework including simplified registration processes and smarter use of data• Changes due to take effect: Off-payroll working being extended to the private sector from April 2021• Anti-avoidance: Possible new measures to tackle promoters of tax avoidance schemes, and disguised remuneration schemes in particular• Tax reform: The possibility of reforms to CGT, IHT, corporate interest deductions, taxing digital services, and R&D tax relief• EU withdrawal: The end of the transitional period will mean major changes to the UK’s trading arrangements
