The Federation of Small business said the plans could ruin its members, while the British Chambers of Commerce expressed concerns that the reform could lead to a more complex system. The Confederation of British Industry stated its members are reluctant to give up capital allowances. ?There is a real concern about the taxing of unrealised gains,? it stated.The new corporation tax, published in a green paper in August, would abolish relief on assets such as plant and machinery through capital allowances. Instead relief will be calculated on depreciation and thus hit company cash flows.
