MPs attack change to SA filing deadlines

Nine MPs across the parties file early day motion attacking proposed SA filing deadlines

A cross-party early day motion has been put forward to persuade the
government not to go ahead with bringing forward self-assessment tax filing
deadlines.

The EDM, put forward yesterday, comprised nine MPs: two from Labour, three
from the Lib Dems and four from the Conservatives.

They warned that moving the deadlines forward would lead to more provisional
and incorrect returns, which would require manual amendment by HMRC, and rather
than spreading workloads would create a ‘larger peak at a different time’.

They also called for the government to consult with the tax profession before
bringing forward any revised proposal. HMRC is currently discussing the issue
with nine professional institutes, including the ICAEW, ICAS and ACCA.

Participants to the EDM included conservative MP Mark Hoban, who is set
to chair the new all-party parliamentary group focusing on accounting and
business issues.
Other EDM participants included Lib-Dem MP Dr Vincent Cable and Labour MP David
Taylor.
