HMRC have just released their summary of responses from their consultation on the UK’s Mandatory Disclosure Rules (MDR).

There were three major outcomes from the responses.

1. Historic Lookback Period 

HMRC had initially suggested that the historic lookback period under UK MDR would go back to 29th October 2014 in line with the Model Mandatory Disclosure Rules for CRS Avoidance. Having considered the balance between burdens on the business and the likely compliance benefits of the data, the government has decided that reporting pre-existing arrangements should only be required from 25 June 2018.

2. XML Reporting

There will be no manual reporting option. Reporting will continue to be via XML, which VinciWorks will support.

3. Timeline

No exact start date has been given but the regulations will go into force in the first half of 2023.
