AccountancyAge.com weekly news focus: Tax

The self-assessment deadline has dominated tax headlines this week. Other news includes a furore over the European court's imposition of VAT on British road tolls, and evidence from KPMG that corporate tax rates worldwide are falling.

AccountancyAge.com will be following up this week on how the Revenue and tax practitioners have dealt with the self-assessment deadline this year.

Early figures indicate that almost a million returns will miss the deadline, despite the Revenue’s generous relaxation of its rules which effectively extended the January 31 deadline by one day this week.

You can read more details by clicking on the headlines on the tax newswire.

But as attention shifts from the hard graft of getting in the returns, the attention of tax specialists will turn to how to deal with tax investigations.

A special feature, from sister publication Financial Director, looking at the new powers tax inspectors want to help them with their enquires will appear on AccountancyAge.com this week.
