Tax collection devolution warning by councils

Local councils could collect new Welsh taxes, but warned they may struggle to meet the devolution deadline due to reorganization. Powers to levy a land transaction tax to replace stamp duty and a landfill disposals tax take effect in 2018. The assembly's finance committee said it was "disappointed" by the situation and called for a "phased approach". It means HMRC could continue collecting the devolved taxes until councils or another body was judged to be ready.
