Making Tax Digital mishandling – Peter Dowd responds

Peter Dowd MP, Labour’s Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, responding to the government’s mishandling of the Making Tax Digital transition, said:

“Owners of small and medium-sized businesses are already worried about the stark changes ahead. They are anxious about the possibility of a no-deal scenario and the overnight effect that would have on costs and supply chains.

“And yet, the government have continuously failed to provide the certainty needed.

“The current timetable risks chaos and confusion as this government continues to flounder in its handling of the digital transition, a failure that has serious consequences for businesses up and down the country.”
