Buried in an FT article on the leveling up plans - delay thereof - I found this gem : "Sunak’s priority is focusing on how to cut taxes rather than ways to increase spending. He has tasked Treasury officials with devising tax reform to reduce the tax burden on working people."
So how would you suggest tax should be reformed to achieve this?
Note that Sunak only wants to reduce the tax burden on working people not small or large businesses (they don't vote).
And how is the "tax burden" defined? - Is it all the tax and NIC you pay, or is it the hassle of complying with the tax reporting regulations : RTi, MTD, self-assessment etc?
