Coronavirus: Update on tax policy consultations

1 May 2020

HM Treasury and HMRC are setting out new timelines for tax policy consultations as a result of COVID-19

The government is extending deadlines to a number of consultations and calls for evidence currently underway by three months.

The extension will give all stakeholders, who are facing disruption due to COVID-19, more time to submit their views and allow them to fully engage with these documents and contribute to the tax policy-making process.

The government is grateful for responses already received and would welcome further early responses from stakeholders where possible, to support its continuing consideration of these issues.


The government’s position on publication of tax policy documents will be kept updated through the public consultations tracker.
