CBI launches ‘tax taskforce’

Aim is to help create simpler and lower business tax regime

A ‘tax taskforce’ has been set up by the
Confederation of British Industry with the
aim of helping to create a simpler and lower business tax regime.

It includes Christopher Morgan, head of international corporate tax at KPMG,

The CBI believes a simpler regime is necessary if the UK is to continue to
enjoy economic prosperity.

Richard
Lambert
, director general of the CBI, said the globalisation and the
increasing mobility of multinational companies meant that national governments
had to rethink their tax policies.

Among other things the taskforce will propose new ways of taxing company
profits, whether they are generated in the UK or overseas, and it will explore
whether business tax harmonisation might benefit British companies that trade in
different countries.
