A New Era For Tax Compliance: Mastering The UK’s Tax Digital Journey

18 July 2017, 12.00 BST/13.00 CEST
Host: Bill Dodwell
Presenters: James Macpherson, Albert Fleming

Tax Authorities around the globe are moving into the ‘Age of Digital’. HMRC’s making tax digital (MTD) transformation programme adds them to the list of tax authorities digitalising their services. This digital shift brings a move away from traditional downstream ‘tax return’ compliance needs, to focus on an upstream ‘real time tax transaction’ compliance, thus enabling a more pro-active taxation system and a fundamental shift in the UK tax authorities’ approach. What should your organisation start thinking about in preparation?

We’ll discuss:

  • Whether HMRC’s MTD transformation programme is the beginning of the end of the traditional tax return.
  • What will change under MTD – for whom and when.
  • Similar digital transformation initiatives in other countries.

What can and should your organisation be doing now to prepare for the digital shift?
