The TaxPayers' Alliance pressure group said today's Government proposals to clamp down on the latest methods of tax avoidance are a "poor substitute for serious reform of the tax system."
Ministers need to be more realistic about HMRC's ability to clamp down when its resources are so stretched simply administering our hideously complicated taxes, let alone chasing those finding creative and legally dubious ways around them.
With a better tax system, HMRC staff can focus their attention on tackling those who are abusing the system. Proper reforms can ensure that everyone pays no more, and no less, than their fair share.
