A lot of changes

HMRC has recently published a (four page!) list of consultations on prospective changes to tax law following the emergency Budget.  Some of the key topics included are taxation of foreign profits, changes to the R&D regime, tax relief on pension contributions, loan relationships and some wide ranging anti-avoidance topics including the possibility of an over-arching general anti-avoidance provision.  There is a broad timetable for the launch of these that started on 22 June and finishes in 'Autumn 2010'.

 

Is it just me or does this sound like a lot to fit in and manage at a time when there is pressure on resources?  From a personal point of view it also looks like a lot to digest, consider possible outcomes and implications, and work out what action should be taken in a short space of time.
