E-filing: Rules on discounts clarified

The English ICA Tax Faculty has been told that those seeking to use Filing By Internet (FBI), will still qualify for the £10 discount even if they do not pay any tax due at the end of July 2000 by electronic means.

To qualify for the discount, taxpayers need only pay the amount due on 31 January 2001 by electronic means.

So far the Inland Revenue has been embarrassed by high-profile problems on the e-filing project. Software facilitating e-filing was delayed and had to be sent out on CD because of long internet download times.

And last week a disgruntled software company reported the Inland Revenue to the Office of Fair Trading. Forbes Software told AccountancyAge.com the move was prompted by the decision to make ‘a last minute’ switch to allow Microsoft to provide its TaxSaver software free of charge to self-assessment e-filers.
