Self assessment post ROSA paper


The Review of Income Tax Self Assessment (ROSA) has resulted in many significant changes in our self assessment system - but has it fixed everything? This paper identifies the significant changes as a result of ROSA and the things that have not changed, with a view to guiding practitioners in securing certainty for their clients:

  • ROSA overview
  • changes to time lines and what hasn’t changed
  • getting certainty after ROSA - what kind of assessment is this?
  • exceptions to the time lines - where is the certainty?
  • dealing with rulings after ROSA
  • self assessment in a consolidations environment
  • what problems persist and how to resolve them.
