So they are going to abolish the tax return. Ah, but the self employed, while not completing returns as such, will have to provide information on a quarterly basis. So that's simplification! Unsurprisingly, there are some who don't think this quite makes sense!
As a self-employed person I’m obliged like millions of others to file a VAT return every quarter. There is a lot of careful totting up of income and costs before an online payment is made to the authorities.
