Thanks Rebecca for the summary, I've been avoiding the subject for long enough so time to let my clients have the news.

We've spent years trying to educate clients and keep an eye out for obvious signs they've missed something, not just to avoid penalties (however determined) but just the hassle of having to correct stuff. They and even we still get it wrong sometimes so, in theory I suppose it's just more of the same?

Apart from the fact that it seems unfair just to target male taxpayers and accountants I don't have any axe to grind over the new regime?
