2008 Tax Return

Radical change in layout (see here).

What do people think?

Providing we can still print out a copy for our clients I have little opinion one way or another. It is only 6 pages long which makes me think there will be lots of additional pages for non-standard clients.

It also seems as though we will have to submit a detailed CGT calculation of every disposal as an attachment to the return - that could be fun!

    seems slightly more logical and a bit more like self assesment (much clearer layout)

    However as you say dean loos like most are going to require additional pages

    For alot of my small self-employed clients, it looks must better. OK, we will need more pages for the more complicated clients, but overall I think it will be an improvement. My opinion anyway. :001_rolleyes:

    It reminds me of the Short Tax Return I used a couple of years ago for a client with less than £15,000 turnover!

    I think it appears simpler than the current return. I guess we'll all find out when we use them for real and discover how many extra pages we have to complete for the more complicated returns. :001_unsure:

    Hi Dean,

    Just wondering how many people will fill in the pennies!

    Page TR 5 box 14. Just like 19B014 on the current SA100 makes me laugh for filing on line.

    But best of all are the last two pages:thumbup:
