Calls for overhaul of UK tax system ‘long overdue’: Accountancy Age

Big Ben at dusk

16th June 2023

Katharine Arthur, Partner and Head of Private Client, notes that the Government has made seemingly little progress towards simplifying the UK tax system, following the Chancellor’s decision to dissolve the Office of Tax Simplification (OTS). She shares her thoughts within Accountancy Age.

Today, the Treasury Committee calls for the Government and Jeremy Hunt to be held accountable for its efforts to simplify the UK tax system, particularly following the decision to disband the OTS.

Katharine echoes the Treasury Committee’s view and notes that “if the last year in tax has taught us anything, it is that confusion does not breed confidence and that we are at a point where the system is buckling under its own weight, reform is nigh.”

Read Katharine’s comments in full in Accountancy Age, as well as in Tax Journal.
