Anthony Thomas will takeover as President of the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) at today's AGM.
His inaugural speech will highlight the importance of trust between the public and HMRC.
CIOT quote him:
"A fair tax system requires respect on both sides.
HMRC are at risk of damaging the trust that has been built up over centuries between tax payers and tax collectors."
His speech will cover:
- The attitude of HMRC to the rule of law;
- The impact of ever-increasing HMRC powers;
- HMRC's operational performance in recent years
He is right, trust is essential both between HMRC and taxpayers and between the government and the voters in order for democracy to continue to function in this country.
Undermine that trust and you undermine the foundations of democracy.
Tax does have to be taxing.
