TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to corporation tax rise reports

For immediate release


Responding to a possible rise in corporation tax in the March budget, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“You couldn’t pick a worse time to be whacking up business taxes. 

“With the economy on its knees and millions facing unemployment, hammering Britain’s big employers would be madness. Taxpayers will never forgive Rishi if he wrecks the recovery before it’s even begun.

“Instead of raising corporation tax, the chancellor should slash the cost of hiring, boost pay packets and drive a wave of employment to get the economy moving again.”
