UKHospitality calls for ‘level playing field’ on tax for digital and physical businesses

UKHospitality has called on the government to provide equality in the tax system by ensuring that transactions on online platforms are taxed appropriately.

The trade association has responded to HMRC’s consultation on online platforms’ role in ensuring tax compliance by their users, recommending:

  • Greater provision of information for smaller users and, if necessary, the tax collection for, and payment to, government (as a business service)
  • A requirement for large-scale users to proactively provide HMRC with relevant business activity to ensure tax compliance

UKHospitality chief executive Kate Nicholls said: “The current tax system is completely inadequate to deal with the complexities of the digital age and hospitality businesses find themselves at a disadvantage.
