Basis period reform: An update
Although the mandation of making tax digital for income tax self-assessment (MTD ITSA) has been delayed, basis period reform will continue as originally planned. For unincorporated businesses which do not have a 31 March or 5 April accounting year end, this means that the established rule for the taxation of trading income, called ‘current year basis’, will be replaced with a new ‘tax year basis’ going forward. The change will take effect from the 2024/25 tax year, with 2023/24 being a transitional year.
In this webinar, we consider the impact of basis period reform and explore some of the practical issues to be thinking about when discussing with your clients who may be affected.
