Responding to the Public Accounts Committee's report on the role of large accountancy firms in tax avoidance, Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
"Our hideously complex tax code makes it easier for well-paid accountants to run rings around the taxman. The power to make our tax system simpler lies in the hands of politicians, so they must stop grandstanding and actually do something to reform it. Taxpayers deserve simpler, lower taxes as well as a system they can trust."
The TaxPayers' Alliance (TPA) proposed a radical simplification of the tax system in the 2020 Tax Commission, a joint project between the TPA and Institute of Directors (IoD). The final report of the commission, The Single Income Tax, can be found here.
