star this property answer text <p>The Government published a report on the loan charge in March 2019. The report was required by section 95 of Finance Act 2019, but goes wider than the review set out in legislation, explaining the rationale for the charge and considering its impacts. The report also provides information on how HM Revenue and Customs support those affected by the loan charge, including the introduction of a dedicated helpline.

star this property answer text <p>The Government has led the way in tackling this complex and international problem. A package of measures was announced at Budget 2016 to tackle abuse by overseas businesses selling goods to UK customers through online marketplaces. This included holding online marketplaces jointly liable for the future unpaid VAT of non-compliant overseas businesses and the introduction of the Fulfilment House Due Diligence Scheme which went live in April 2019. At Budget 2017 the Government strengthened the joint and several liability rules for online marketplaces to include UK businesses, where they either knew or should have known that an overseas business should have been registered for VAT and required them to display a valid VAT number where provided with one. Taken together, these measures are expected to deliver just under £1bn by 2023.</p> more like this

When complaints are received, HMRC aim to deal with them effectively and learn from them to improve services and operations for the benefit of all customers. HMRC have complete operational independence from Treasury Ministers, and therefore the Chancellor of the Exchequer will not be privy to the results of how HMRC has responded to specific complaints.</p> more like this
