Tax administration framework

New measures will be introduced to strengthen HMRC’s data gathering powers. From 2025/26:

  • Employers will be required to provide data on employee hours paid as part of their PAYE reporting; and
  • Shareholders in owner-managed businesses will be required to include on their self-assessment tax return their percentage shareholding and dividend income from their company (separately to any other dividend income they may receive).

These measures will build on previously announced HMRC powers that will enable them to access taxpayer data from online marketplaces (e.g. from airbnb) from 1 January 2024.

In conclusion

As we move into 2024, there are a lot of tax changes already scheduled, plus we can expect more with a Spring Budget and a general election on the horizon.
