Tax Simplification? - My Arse!

As per Andrew Neil:
"Tolley's Tax Handbook, the bible of British tax, now 11,500 pages long. Doubled under Gordon Brown. And still growing under G Osborne."
Whatever happened to the Orifice for Tax Simplification?

As per Gauke in July 2010:
"The tax system created by the previous government was overly complex and has made the tax affairs of millions of families and businesses across the UK extremely complicated.

We need to reduce the complexities in our tax system and the coalition is committed to delivering that goal."
However, as I noted at the time:
"..politicians by their very nature abhor 'simplification' as it makes them 'redundant' in the eyes of the voters."
Some two and half years on and nothing has changed for the better!

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. I'm amused that the OTS think altering the duty on Black Beer is simplifying the tax system.
