Revenue introduces discounts to attract more customers to e-filing.

Self-assessment taxpayers who file their returns over the Internet and pay any tax due electronically, will receive a discount of £10 from April, the Inland Revenue announced this week. The move was first revealed by Accountancy Age in December. The Revenue added that from April 2001 small businesses that file their VAT returns or PAYE end-of-year returns via the Internet and pay any tax due electronically will receive a discount of £50 – or a double discount of £100 for both PAYE and VAT. The Revenue also plans to allow employers to send and receive a wide range of Pay As You Earn forms and returns via the Internet during the next tax year, and enable VAT registered businesses to send their returns via the Net. ‘Internet technology will help deliver the Government’s vision of making services available 24 hours a day, seven days a week,’ a spokesman said. ‘The discounts should encourage take-up of the new services, lead to administrative savings and boost customer service by offering businesses and taxpayers new ways of dealing with their tax affairs.’
