Open Consultations

We are frequently invited to comment on matters of tax law or practice, and we also submit proactive papers to Government where we feel there are issues to be raised or we wish to stimulate discussion. This section lists open consultations on which we would welcome input. Have your say on consultations here.

All our submissions are available to view here.
