The Treasury has established processes in place to ensure appropriate assessments of equality and family test impacts are conducted in the development of new policy.

In the interests of transparency, we have gone beyond legal requirements by publishing impacts for the tax measures announced at the Spring Statement 2022 in summary form in Tax Information and Impact Notes (https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/tax-information-and-impact-notes-tiins - spring-statement-2022)
