The measure in line 46 of Table 2.1 in the Budget 2016 document entitled Value Added Tax: tackling overseas trader evasion” has not been incorporated in the Spring Budget 2017 document as line ‘p’ in Table 2.2 of Spring Budget 2017 which is entitled “Offshore Tax: close loopholes and improve reporting”. These are two different measures.

The measure in line 46 of Table 2.1 in the Budget 2016 document has been re-costed and is presented in line ‘as’ of Table 2.2 in the Spring Budget 2017 with the same title as when the measure was originally announced (“Value Added Tax: tackling overseas trader evasion”).
