BCC calls for digital delay The British Chambers of Commerce has urged Chancellor Philip Hammond to push back the deadline for the introduction of its "making tax digital" programme by a year. In a letter to the Times, the body says delaying the April 1 deadline will give businesses more time to prepare for digitised tax returns. Claire Walker, co-executive director of policy and campaigns at the organisation, said: “This project is coming at the wrong time for both business and HMRC. There will inevitably be hiccups, so introducing it when Revenue resources are so stretched is asking for trouble.” Ms Walker also says HMRC is “under increasing pressure to ensure it is prepared for new customs and trade processes” as Brexit approaches, with this “made all the harder by lack of clarity on what they might look like.”
