Lib Dems question government on tax filing deadlines

Lib Dem shadow chancellor calls on more detail from government over SA filing deadlines

Lib Dem shadow chancellor Vincent Cable has called on the government to
provide more detail about the impact of bringing forward self-assessment tax
return deadlines.

In questions to the House of Commons on Wednesday, Cable asked paymaster
general Dawn Primarolo if the government was assessing the potential impact of
advancing SA filing deadlines.

Primarolo stated that changes to the deadlines would enable HM Revenue &
Customs to calculate tax for paper filers before the current 31 January deadline
and ensure PAYE coding notices were ‘up to date by the start of the following
tax year’.

ICAEW tax faculty deputy chairman Paul Aplin reiterated that the new
deadlines would lead to ‘more errors’ and more provisional returns to HMRC,
leading to ‘more paperwork, not less’.
