A Voice for Small Businesses in the Tax System

The annual 'Tell ABAB' survey is now available to complete.  The survey which is commissioned by an independent body, the Administrative Burdens Advisory Board, provides crucial insight on the big issues faced by small businesses in the tax system.

The survey takes around 10 minutes to complete and will be open until 2 May 2023. Results will be published in the 'Tell ABAB' Report, on GOV.UK in summer 2023.

Members of the ABAB come from a range of businesses and professions and their goal is to support HMRC to make the tax system quicker and simpler for small businesses. They challenge HMRC on it's performance, providing robust scrutiny against key initiatives such as MTD and improving customer experience. The annual report is sent directly to Treasury ministers and reviews HMRC's progress against ABAB priorities.

If you are a small business owner in the UK, the survey is your chance to provide the ABAB with insight on the tax system which they can use to support you. Complete the survey now to ensure your voice is heard SURVEY
