Self-assessment set to go paperless

printer Mail

HMRC has announced plans for paperless self-assessment tax returns in a consultation document published last week. Under this system, customers will receive communications from HMRC electronically, rather than by letter. Changes to existing tax law are needed to enable HMRC to offer this improved service. The consultation, HMRC Digital Strategy – legislative changes to enable paperless self-assessment, is seeking views on the proposed changes to legislation. The deadline for responses is 27 December 2013.
