Small Business Bill schema release and dates

The new alpha schemas are intended for developers to get an early sight of our draft schemas required for the Small Business Bill. Once the changes to schemas settle down, which we are hoping will be over the next few weeks, these schemas will change to release candidates, in preparation for the 30th June release.

Dates used in schemas
You may have noticed that in our sample xml files we are using dates prior to the legislative date. For instance PSC schemas use dates prior to the 6th April 2016. The reason for this is that we stop any future date filings so we have set our go-live date to 2015 to enable us all to be able to test prior to go-live. Please bear this in mind in any of your development, as we appreciate this can be confusing looking at our samples.
