“Not enough time” to implement MTD by 2018, says Tyrie

Thursday, January 12th, 2017


ANDREW TYRIE has suggested there will not be enough time to implement Making Tax Digital (MTD) by April 2018.

In correspondence between Andrew Tyrie, chairman of the Treasury committee and Jane Ellison, financial secretary to the treasury, the government’s response for MTD consultations were discussed, with Tyrie outlining a lack of time to implement the controversial tax reporting regime by the planned date. Mr Tyrie said of the correspondence: “It is welcome that the government has decided not to rush its response to HMRC’s consultation. But this may mean that there is insufficient time for adequate consultation to take place on the draft clauses, once published.”

Page 41 of the Autumn Statement document states: “In January 2017, the government will publish its response to the Making Tax Digital consultations and provisions to implement the previously announced changes.”
