The Scottish Parliament has announced that its Draft Budget 2018/19 will be published on 14 December 2017.

The parliament has taken on board recommendations from the Budget Process Review Group, resulting in an updated timetable and a year round approach to Budget scrutiny reflecting:

  • Full Year Approach
  • Continuous Cycle
  • Output/outcome focused
  • Fiscal Responsibility
  • Interdependence

The Finance Secretary has asked opposition parties for confirmation of their proposals for income tax policy so as to create a discussion paper with a view to forming a consensus position. This should be published before the budget and may give a better idea of the proposals to be included.

A Scottish approach to taxation call for evidence

Wouldn’t it be great and think how much TIME it would SAVE you if someone:

  • READ all the latest tax news, case decisions, new legislation and articles in tax and then summarised them for you?
  • Only alerted you to things that are RELEVANT to you?

How about if that someone also:

  • Updated those summaries in REAL TIME for you
  • ADDED examples, planning points, toolkits and calculators, and
  • Linked all that information together and also provided you with CPD?

Thousands of firms of accountants and advisers are already using as their primary TAX resource.

At a cost of just £1 per day, it’s a no brainer: FREE up your MIND and your TIME (and your wallet).

And...we run our Virtual Tax Partner support service, if you need assistance with a particular query or technical issue.
