HMRC’s Making Tax Digital webinars

Huge consultation begins with a webinar series

On 15 August, HMRC published six consultation documents explaining the government’s proposals to Make Tax Digital. These will also introduce new record keeping requirements for businesses and change a considerable amount of the administration of the UK tax system. We wrote short briefings on these and all are available from our news item, Making tax digital: HMRC issues six consultation documents.

HMRC has now announced a programme of webinars and face-to-face events across the UK which will provide more detail on the consultations and an opportunity to ask questions and give feedback.
