The OTS has published a call for evidence today (25 July 2014), which also gives an update on progress made by HMRC on implementing some of the OTS’s short-term recommendations.
The call for evidence will explore how to develop the medium and long-term areas set out by the OTS in the interim report, including developing education for the smallest partnerships, whether partners should be able to include partnership expenses on their personal returns, and how best to reduce difficulties surrounding stamp taxes and double taxation treaties.
The OTS has now published its final report on partnerships taxation (19 January 2015). The report makes 14 further recommendations including clear and comprehensive guidance for new partnerships, allowing partners to claim their own expenses, simpler HMRC administration for international partnerships, and extending gift aid to partnerships.
As ever we would be interested in any feedback.
