LETTERS – Keep it simple.

I read with interest the articles concerning simplification of VAT by Chas Roy Chowdhury and Sir Peter Kemp (Opinion, page 10, 8 November).

I agree completely with Mr Chowdhury and can only say that Sir Peter’s opinion was quite obviously from a former civil servant. In other words, the more complicated and confusing the legislation is, the better.

If a chancellor or indeed a government wanted to simplify the legislation covering VAT it could do so without too much effort.
