The UK government responded swiftly to support business as COVID-19 swept across the globe. For the UK, schemes such as the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and the Self-Employed Income Support Scheme provided a lifeline to many, as did the loan support schemes, extensions to tax reliefs and tax payment deadlines.
But as we emerge from the pandemic, what of the aftermath and how much have we learnt? Anita Monteith, ICAEW’s senior tax policy adviser, suggests her top five tax policy tips.
Anita has a particular interest in tax matters affecting SMEs and is closely involved with online filing developments. In her time at ICAEW she has been seconded to the government’s Treasury Select Committee and appointed Specialist Adviser to a House of Lords Committee. She is a member of the Tax Professionals Forum which reviews the government’s policy making process.
