ACCA says no self-assessment for OAPs

ACCA has also called on the government to provide concessions to pensioners who fail to receive Revenue support when completing their forms.

Chas Roy-Chowdhury, ACCA head of taxation, said the requirement for pensioners to provide detailed information was ‘unnecessary’.

He added: ‘Many pensioners are confused by the complicated self-assessment forms they are required to complete. The forms need to be simplified and shortened to ensure that only relevant information is provided.’
