Finance Bill 2017 is published

The Finance Bill was published on Monday 20 March 2017 along with explanatory notes.

The Finance Bill contains 135 clauses and 29 Schedules and is already 762 pages long. That is nearly 100 pages longer than the longest ever Finance Act, that of 2012  which was 687 pages. It is quite likely that the Finance Bill will exceed 800 pages before it is enacted.

Tax Faculty will produce a review of the contents of the Finance Bill on Friday 24 March and will also cover the other announcements and consultations that were published at the same time as the Finance Bill.
