Next stage of income tax and NI merger revealed

THE NEXT STEP in plans to integrate income tax and national insurance has been announced by the government.

After receiving evidence on the issue, the government has set out how it will approach the next stage of reform.

The latest announcement came in tandem with the launch of a paper looking at improving the personal tax regime.

“The government will be working in partnership with external stakeholders to identify options and will report on progress at Budget,” said Exchequer secretary to the secretary David Gauke (pictured).

“Our vision is to transform the customer experience of the personal tax system. The documents published today set the stage for the ideas and innovations that will realise that ambition.”
