On the back of the recent call for evidence, I have been invited to the House of Lords select committe to give evidence at a round table discussion next week.
I am going to get a couple of minutes at best, so what are the key points I should make on behalf of you horrible lot?
My key points are along the lines of:
1. We need a proper open pilot as was supposed to happen from this April.
2. The switch over should be slow burn, to allow adoption when it suits business and when the benfits are clear. Ie soft launch, with a hard deadline some years into the distance.
3. Penalties should be only levied if the tax is wrong, or paid late, not for how records are retained, so long as they are sufficient to work out the tax correctly.
