According to the statement: 'The two departments are in the forefront of the move to Information Age Government outlined in the Modernising Government White Paper. They have sought, and continue to seek, to take advantage of technological advances to improve the service they provide.
'Both the Inland Revenue and Customs are introducing Internet filing of tax returns, and the first electronic submissions will be possible during 2000/2001. The Government intends to offer a discount on tax returns filed over the Internet as announced in Budget 1999.'
'The Government is committed to ensuring that taxation is not a barrier to the growth of e-commerce, and has introduced a package of measures to encourage enterprise, growth and investment in the UK. At the same time tax revenues must remain secure. The Government is working with business and its international partners, to resolve and clarify particular issues and establish consensus on those of international significance.'
