Warning of 'teething problems' over online tax return filing

Dennis Keeling, BASDA chief executive, has warned of teething problems in the run up to the release of government tax e-filing initiative

The warning came as he first announced the development of the standard XML message to handle self assessment for the launch of the government self assessment e-filing.

The e-filing will be introduced in April and other services including payment over the web of taxis expected to be introduced by the end of the year and agent filing of SA returns in which BASDA will also be helping to develop. Dennis Keeling said: ‘We anticipate their will be some teething problems in the early days but since the first quarter the financial year is a quiet time, we expect to overcome any major problems.? BASDA is also developing schemes for PAYE internet filing and the service will be released during the next financial year.’

Internet tax filing moves one step closer
