Simple Tax? Office of Tax Simplification (OST) launched

The BBC reports on the set up of the Office of Tax Simplification (OST). We are pleased to see this and the tax policy document issued at the time of the emergency Budget.

Both the document and the objectives of the OST make pleasant reading and it is to be hoped that the aims are fulfilled. As I observed in my article in Taxation magazine there will be a huge benefit for everyone if the tax system can be made to work in a better way.

We will be watching carefully and responding to consultations where appropriate and we will keep you posted as developments unfold.
