Draft legislation for Finance Bill 2013 will be published on Tuesday, 11 December 2012, the government has announced.

Exchequer Secretary David Gauke said in a written statement that during the summer HM Treasury and HMRC had invited the views of interested parties on ‘over 35’ of the tax policies announced at Budget 2012. Responses to the consultations will be published on or by 11 December 2012, he said. Draft legislation for those measures, to be included in Finance Bill 2013, will be published on that date and supplemented by draft explanatory notes and tax information and impact notes. The draft clauses will be open for consultation until 6 February 2013.

George Osborne announced last week that he will deliver his autumn statement on Wednesday, 5 December.
