Both the Tories and the Lib Dems have claimed that huge amounts of simplification is needed and will outline pre-election initiatives to make the taxation of individuals and companies simpler and fairer, reports The Financial Times.

The Conservatives are set to announce plans to establish a new body that would examine the existing tax system while the Lib Dems are calling for a new commission on tax simplification to be set up.
