HMRC’s information gathering powers are expanding further

15 September 2020

HMRC may soon be able to demand information from financial institutions without taxpayer or tribunal permission. These new powers could allow HMRC to demand complex information, which is difficult and expensive for institutions to collect, with no right to appeal against a request.

Government’s duty-free shopping cutbacks have angered retailers

15 September 2020

In a post Brexit shake up of duty and tax-free shopping for travellers, the government has announced that VAT free sales of non-excise goods, such as electronics and clothing, at ports and airports will end on 1 January 2021. The allowances for bringing back alcohol and tobacco from EU member states will also be drastically cut.

HMRC CJRS U-turn could result in many claims being miscalculated

15 September 2020

Could the Chancellor’s CGT plan backfire?

15 September 2020

Recent press reports suggest that the Chancellor is considering a significant increase in Capital Gains Tax rates in the Autumn Budget in order to help fill the hole in the Treasury’s finances. If that is the Chancellor’s intention, he could be sorely disappointed by the level of tax receipts such an increase in rates could generate.

More difficulties created by the Trust Registration Service

15 September 2020

As a result of the requirements laid down by the Fifth Money Laundering Directive, the pre-existing Trust Registration Service (TRS) (which had already been beset with technical issues since its introduction) was considered inadequate. Following a welcomed consultation on the matter, HMRC created a new ‘micro-service’ Trust Registration Service, but is it working?
