The Treasury Select Committee has issued a report that concludes that much more work is needed before the tax system is said to be moving towards simplification.
It seems that, at "best", the measures taken by George Osborne have slowed "the rate of increase of complexity".
Accountancy Age quote the report:
"However, the primary duty for securing simplification should lie with the Government in its design and administration of the tax system."
Sadly the politicians, who are repsonsibile for this mess, have no real intention of simplifying the system. We are locked on a "defined path" of ever increasing complexity.
Tax does have to be taxing.
