Exclusive content
Access to our exclusive resources is for specific groups of students, users, members and subscribers.
In this webinar, Thomas Brown of HMRC and Richard Jones of ICAEW's Tax Faculty share the latest developments on the transition to a fiscal year basis of taxation for all unincorporated businesses (basis period reform) as we move towards the transitional year of 2023/24.

In particular this webinar focuses on :

  • the use of estimates in preparing tax computations encompassing multiple accounting periods and penalties position when those estimates are subsequently corrected;
  • the latest guidance on requesting overlap profits information from HMRC;
  • an update on the work HMRC is doing to update tax returns and filing processes in advance of the change; and
  • methods that HMRC is using to publicise the upcoming changes with agents and businesses.

Please note: for the purposes of this webinar the presenters have assumed that viewers are familiar with the new rules applying from 2024/25 (and the transitional rules applicable in 2023/24). If you are unfamiliar with the new rules or require a refresher there are links to previous webinars and our TAXguide on the topic in the resources below.
