Dawn Primarolo: The first of the proposed corporation tax rewrite Bills is expected to be enacted early in 2009 and the second a year later. This will complete the proposed rewrite of corporation tax legislation. The timetable has been agreed by the Tax Law Rewrite projects Steering and Consultative Committees.
The cost of the rewrite to business will mainly arise through tax professionals spending time becoming familiar with the rewritten legislation. It has not been possible to quantify this cost. But users have expressed confidence that the clearer legislation in those Acts will result in efficiency savings many times greater than this initial cost.
Dawn Primarolo: The Tax Law Rewrite project was set up in 1996 under the right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr. Clarke), the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Shortly after this the project issued a consultation document outlining proposals for taking the work forward. There were over 70 written responses including responses from most of the representative bodies in the tax field.
Extensive consultation has always been a key aspect of the project's work. It has a steering committee and a consultative committee made up of representatives of professional bodies. Its work is also published on the internet for wider consultation.
The first draft corporation tax clauses were published for consultation in 2006 and a response document will be published shortly. The project has also published papers on the scope of the corporation tax rewrite. Its scope has been agreed by both the
steering and the consultative committees. The intention is to complete the rewrite of corporation tax in two Bills.
Dawn Primarolo: The Tax Law Rewrite project's work involves widespread consultation with representative bodies and others interested in tax legislation. In the ordinary course of this process, representations have been received by the project about whether the loan relationships and derivative contract legislation should be rewritten and if so, when.
The Consultative Committee of the Tax Law Rewrite project is made up of a wide range of representative bodies including those that made representations about this issue. It recently agreed the proposal to include these rewritten provisions in the first of the two corporation tax rewrite Bills. This decision was endorsed by the project's steering committee.
