Osborne tax announcement Left Unity response April 12th, 2014 admin Latest News Shares Comments Osborne tax announcement Left Unity response Responding to George Osborne’s announcement on tax evasion, Salman Shaheen of Left Unity said: “Osborne’s measures are a step in the right direction to tackle tax evasion, but they will do nothing to prevent the kind of routine tax-dodging antics employed by Google, Amazon and Starbucks, which our lax laws allow. “The government’s cuts to HMRC are only making the problem worse. “Left Unity proposes a comprehensive set of measures to stamp out tax avoidance. In the first instance we would bring in a general anti tax avoidance principle to allow HMRC to challenge any transaction done for the primary purpose of tax avoidance. We also support a system of unitary taxation and full country by country reporting.” Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
