No Accounting for Taste ep42: Land tax, tory tax and unregulated agents
On the No Accounting for Taste podcast this week we talk unregulated agents, Conservative leadership tax policies, and we’re also joined by the co-author of the Land for the Many report.
Host Richard Hattersley is joined by AccountingWEB’s editorial team to discuss the top stories over the last seven days, including the news that accountancy’s professional bodies have branded unregulated agents “extraordinarily unfair” who are “probably not as concerned with PCRT rules”.
Also in the podcast, business editor Francois Badenhorst had the opportunity to speak with the co-author of the Land for the Many, Laurie MacFarlane – a report commissioned by the Labour party about land ownership and control, where recommendations include replacing council tax with a progressive property tax and major reforms of the private rented sector.
And finally, there is no escaping the Conservative leadership race, not even on the No Accounting for Taste. In a week where Michael Gove announced that he wants to abolish VAT and replace it with simple tax, AccountingWEB’s editor Tom Herbert breaks down the leadership candidate’s tax plans if they get the key to Number 10. Be warned, it gets sweary.
