Call for Evidence: Raising Standards in The Tax Advice Market - Three Days Left

Call for evidence: raising standards in the tax advice market

Summary

We welcome views on ways to raise standards and increase transparency in the tax advice market.

This consultation closes at

Consultation description

This call for evidence was published on 19 March and was due to close on 28 May. We are grateful for the responses we have already received. The government recognises that many sectors with an interest in this policy are affected by COVID-19. We want to give all stakeholders time to submit their views, so we have extended the consultation. The closing date is now 28 August 2020 (11.45pm). However, we encourage early responses from stakeholders, where possible, to support our ongoing consideration of this policy.

The call for evidence asks for views and evidence on several issues including:

  • the scope of the market for tax advice and services
  • the characteristics of good and bad practice
  • current government interventions
  • international models
  • possible approaches to raising standards

We strongly recommend that you respond to the consultation by email, given the temporary closure of HMRC’s Canary Wharf office and the wider impact of COVID-19 on postal services. Sending responses by post may result in a delay to your submission being considered.
