An update on the Tory Government’s Digital Services Tax… so they had their Consultation this year… so what happened next?
Well, the draft provisions are scheduled for inclusion in the next Finance Bill and are due to take effect from 1 April 2020…
However, they will never be implemented as described… reason?
The DST are now a bargaining chip for Johnson’s Tory Government in their future trade negotiations with the US.
Expect them to be trivialized or removed entirely… as the reality of negotiating a deal with the US behemoth from outside the world’s largest trading bloc sinks in for all.
