CLA says online tax returns impossible in some areas

December 3, 2009

A decision by the Inland Revenue is causing trouble for businesses in rural areas.

The plan by the HRMC means that any business with a turnover above £100,000 will have to file its tax returns online.

However according to the president of the CLA, William Worsley, this decision is totally unworkable for many businesses in the rural areas of the UK where broadband is not available.

The government has been pushing the use of online access to government services for a number of years, so it is not a surprise that the Inland Revenue has followed suit.

What this does is highlight the need for broadband to be made available in all parts of the UK, not just for surfing and shopping, and it will help people from all walks of life access government services.
