I dont care as long as the resulting legislation is transparent and equitable.
As long as I know my tax status and how much of my/my companies income will be going to the exchequer I can set a rate accordingly. It is the current not knowing for 6 years I have problems with, particularly as status can change with every new precedent set to law.

Totally agree - at least this sounds like an honest approach rather than a get rcih policy for lawyers.

Thing is there is a share residence court order. Breaking hague convention is major major hassle! Even Zimbabwe follows it - very few countries dont.

New powers will be given to Revenue and Customs to probe so-called "golden goodbye" payoffs to company executives to ensure they are fully taxed, it adds.

This would stop bosses "being rewarded for failure", Mr Cable said.

How? Just means the government is also rewarded for the executive's failure.

And if any of this goes to tax cuts for the poor, then isn't that also rewarding failure?

They've long had some nutcase tax policies and opinions but some of this week's comments really take the biscuit.

1) "we're going to cut down on directors tax dodging when they get a pay off for being sacked"! Um no-one but no-one engineers getting sacked so that they can save a bit of tax on their compensation payment, it nonsense.

2) "We're going to cut done on government waste ..... by ditching the billion pound a year road budget". How is spending money on road building "waste". It might be something that satisfies a different political agenda, but it's never (of itself) waste.

Numpties.

In a similar way to David Steel once did. Also, he didn't actually specify when they would actually form a government.

Exactly
Tax law is a mess and is over due for reform in this country.

The number of rules, loopholes, new rules and general muddying of the waters doesn't help anybody.
Everytime the government has tried to close a loophole, all they have done is made the tax rules even less clear and earned themselves some extra pocket change in tax income whilst also pissing off even more of the voting public

So they could both be right then?
