HMRC accepts revised tax filing deadlines

Lord Carter's revised SA filing deadlines accpeted by HMRC

HM Revenue & Customs has agreed to backtrack on plans to introduce
controversial new self-assessment tax filing deadlines.

Paymaster general Dawn Primarolo announced that HMRC would accept revised
recommendations by Lord Carter to push back the SA online filing deadline to 31
January, and 31 October for paper returns.

‘The government has accepted Lord Carter’s revised recommendation. This
updating of the self-assessment system takes account of both the views of tax
professionals and the operational requirements of HM Revenue & Customs,’
said Primarolo.

Lord Carter had initially recommended that the online filing deadline be
moved from 31 January to 30 November, with paper filing brought forward to 30
September. The initial plans were met with dismay by the accounting profession,
who claimed that the deadlines would cause huge workflow problems and a greater
likelihood of incorrect tax submissions.
