Business warned over 50% tax strategies

Trying to duck the 50% tax rate could hit businesses later on in the
business cycle.

Accelerating cash payments before the new tax comes into effect could prove

certain circumstances. Other are deferring bonuses altogether in the hope that
the tax rate will fall, reported the
FT.
