Clegg wants SMEs to voice tax dislikes
Push the Office of Tax Simplification for change, urges Nick Clegg
THE DEPUTY prime minister wants small business to be more proactive in flagging up tax rules they dislike to the Office of Tax Simplification.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Nick Clegg said the small business should “be demanding”.
“Which rules get in your way? Government after government has made this worse. Tell us what’s wrong with tax compliance – we’ll listen and we’ll help,” said Clegg in the report.
He wants less red tape and a lower burden on SMEs from government organisations, including HM Revenue & Customs.
“…The need for a measured approach is essential,” he added.
