Description

According to Phil Hall, Head of Public Affairs & Public Policy, AAT, the combination of simplicity, fairness and equity should all contribute to tax policy making. These values are also necessary in order to make the tax system more accessible, clear and transparent to the public.

Effective scrutiny plays also an important part and it is in everyone’s interests that this is carried out effectively. A sign of a stronger government is when it listens to opposing sides and the wider public.
