March 21, 2011 4:00 PM

The TaxPayers’ Alliance (TPA) outlined how to abolish National Insurance by 2017 to make the tax system simpler and more transparent. National Insurance serves no purpose and has set out a package of measures to merge both employers’ and employees’ contributions with Income Tax. This detailed and extensive transition plan comes in the run up to the Autumn Statement and anticipates the long-awaited launch of the Office for Tax Simplification's report into simplifying National Insurance, which itself will inform George Osborne's policy consultation before next year's Budget.
