Draft legislation has been published for consultation ahead of Budget 2019.
In accordance with the Government’s ‘Tax Policy Cycle’ for tax changes, the draft clauses for Finance Bill 2019-20 were published on 11 July 2019. On ‘Legislation Day’ or ‘L-Day’, as it is commonly referred to, various supporting documents were also published, including responses to consultations, most notably on (i) the proposed digital services tax, (ii) a new corporate capital loss restriction, (iii) off-payroll working (IR35) reforms and (iv) changes to the stamp taxes on shares consideration rules. Also, with immediate effect, there will be a new deferred payment option for corporation tax on profits or gains arising from certain intra-group asset transfers to EU/European Economic Area companies. The next step is for the draft legislation to be consulted upon until 5 September 2019 with the final contents of Finance Bill 2019-20 subject to confirmation at Budget 2019.
In this issue of Tax Matters Digest we provide high-level commentary on the following key pieces of draft legislation published for Finance Bill 2019-20:
