HMT HMRC consultation: Digital services tax
Released 7 November 2018
HM Treasury and HMRC have published a consultation seeking views on the detailed design and implementation of a Digital Services Tax from April 2020.
The Government has announced that it will introduce a new Digital Services Tax in April 2020. This is designed as an interim response, pending global reform, to the challenges that digital businesses create for the international corporate tax system, as set out in the Government’s previous position papers. The Government is consulting on the detailed design and implementation of that tax ahead of its inclusion in the 2019-20 Finance Bill. The consultation closes at 11:59pm on 28 February 2019.
