This is an inquiry into how tax policy is made, how tax collection is administered and how to address the vulnerability of the tax base.
The complexity of tax law is turning what should be a straightforward principle – that everybody should pay the correct amount of tax – in to a piece of elastic. For corporation tax, for instance, the problem is exacerbated by the globalisation of economic activity and any liability to tax that accompanies it.
The Inquiry will look at whether the tax system, including the making of tax policy and the administration of tax by HMRC, is fit for purpose for the 21st Century.
Evidence given by John Cullinane, Tax Policy Director, Chartered Institute of Taxation, Richard Murphy, Director, Tax Research LLP, John Whiting, Tax Director, Office of Tax Simplification
