Our work programmes
Towards the end of each financial year, we prepare draft programmes of priority work for the following year. The criteria for inclusion in the programmes includes the importance of the issues involved, the level of uncertainty/ambiguity, the number of taxpayers potentially affected, the need to resolve existing issues, and the potential revenue implications. The draft programmes are consulted on with key stakeholders.
2023-24 work programme consultation
We are now looking for suggestions for the 2023-24 public guidance work programme. Suggestions are important for ensuring our public guidance items are relevant, useful and address the technical issues that are important to both Inland Revenue and our customers.
If you are aware of any tax technical or interpretative issues you think we should publish guidance on, please let us know by 6 June 2023.
To make a suggestion you can either:
- send an email to [email protected] including a short description of the issue and why you think it’s important. Legislation, section references and case names etc are helpful, or
- complete the 2023-24 public guidance work programme suggestion form on our Tax Technical website.
The criteria for inclusion in the programme include the importance of the issues involved, the level of uncertainty/ambiguity, the number of customers potentially affected, and the potential revenue implications.
