The Government keeps all tax reliefs under review, and regularly receives proposals for changes to tax reliefs. The Government has committed to reviewing MGETR before its expiry in 2022.

When considering potential changes, HM Treasury must ensure they provide support to businesses across the economy in a fair way and represent good value for money for the taxpayer.
