Released 20 July 2021
The Office of Tax Simplification (OTS) has published its 2020–21 Annual Report.
The OTS reports that the past year has been productive, despite the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, with an online event to mark the OTS’s 10th anniversary and major reports on Claims and Elections and Capital Gains Tax, and with further reports published since March 2021.
Looking ahead, the OTS says it looks forward to the completion of the current statutory five-yearly review of the OTS and will continue to make a full contribution to government thinking about the potential for tax reform and simplification, not least through its 10-year tax administration strategy.
