Press release

The Low Incomes Tax Reform Group (LITRG) has launched its newly re-designed website, which will continue to provide a valuable resource for taxpayers, journalists and others who need help and information on the UK tax system.

In 2023, more than five million people viewed the website, which has been regularly cited by the House of Commons Library as a useful source for tax information1.

Updates to the site mean that it now benefits from improved navigation and accessibility, as well as the addition of new information in a number of areas.

Journalists writing about the tax system – and their readers – can use the website to find information on a range of topics including:

  • Income tax and National Insurance obligations for the employed and self-employed.
  • How to respond to an HMRC enquiry and how to appeal a tax decision.
  • Issues around employment status, agency work and umbrella companies.
  • Tax obligations for online traders and others in the ‘gig economy’.
  • Guidance on taking on an employee.
  • How tax operates when putting money into, or taking it out of, a pension.
  • Tax issues for migrants, including explaining residence and domicile, and double tax issues for people arriving in or leaving the UK.
  • Tax on savings and investments, including cryptoassets.
  • Property taxes, such as renting out a property.
  • Universal credit and tax credits.

The site includes contact details for LITRG’s media relations team, who can be contacted if you have a media query or would like to speak with one of LITRG’s tax experts2

You can also keep up to date with LITRG activity, including recent press releases, responses to government consultations and articles on topical tax issues on the site.

Please get in touch with us if we can help you when writing about a tax issue that impacts low-income those unable to pay for tax advice.
