Chancellor of the exchequer Rishi Sunak is set to delay any final decision on a UK online sales tax to the autumn and will take his lead from whether the US supports the reform.

The chancellor is set to publish a range of different tax consultations along with a summary of responses to his review on the future of business rates.
