CIPP comment

We are due to receive government responses to several consultations at this year’s Autumn Statement which may well be included in the draft legislation for Finance Bill 2017. Expected announcements include further detail on:

  • the review of income tax and national insurance alignment;
  • alignment of dates for making-good on benefits-in-kind; and
  • salary sacrifice for the provision of benefits in kind.

The Policy Team always produce a summary of relevant announcements; watch our news pages from Wednesday 23 November to find out what you need to know.
