Motion text

That this House notes the proposal to shorten the deadline for submission of self-assessment tax returns from 31st January 2009 to 30th November 2008 for online returns and to 30th September 2008 for manual returns; further notes that this proposal was made without proper consultation with tax advisers and their clients; believes the current proposals will place an undue burden on taxpayers by requiring them to provide information to their advisers in a shorter timescale; further believes the current proposals will lead to an increase in the number of provisional and incorrect returns, which will require manual amendment by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) as their online systems are unable to accept amendments; further believes that, far from spreading the workload for accountants and HMRC, the proposal will create a larger peak at a different time; therefore urges the Government to withdraw the proposal; and recommends that the Government consult with the tax profession before bringing forward any revised proposal.
