Last week it was announced that due to Brexit some of HMRC’s plans have had to be put on hold, so they have decided that Digital Services for Individuals would be put on hold.
HMRC’s email stated: ‘We have made the decision to delay plans to introduce further digital services for individuals, to release project capability to EU Exit work. This means halting progress on simple assessment and real time tax code changes.’
‘We will pause work to digitise services that impact fewer numbers of customers, such as those paying Inheritance Tax, or applying for Tax Advantaged Venture Capital Schemes and PAYE settlement agreements.’
