Consultation description

The government has announced that it will introduce a new Digital Services Tax in April 2020. This is designed as an interim response, pending global reform, to the challenges that digital businesses create for the international corporate tax system, as set out in the government’s previous position papers. The government is consulting on the detailed design and implementation of that tax ahead of its inclusion in the 2019-20 Finance Bill.

The consultation runs until 28 February 2019.
