Digital Services Tax - Consultation Submission
See the IAB's response to the proposed Digital Services Tax.
Last November the Treasury launched a consultation on the design and implementation of the Digital Services Tax announced in the 2018 Budget. The IAB has met with Treasury officials to discuss the proposal, which is for a revenue-based tax on companies that generate a certain amount from ‘user participation’ in the UK through provision of social media platforms, search engines or online marketplaces. We have responded to the consultation, stressing concerns that the proposed design of the tax could negatively impact the wider digital advertising industry.
Rediscover the joy of digital advertising
Champion connections instead of clicks. Capture audiences' imaginations, not just their attention. Boldly move to your own beat instead of letting tech set the pace. It’s time to rediscover the joy of digital.
