In a collective letter addressed to the Financial Secretary, Victoria Atkins, the CIOT, ATT, LITRG, ICAS, and ICAEW have expressed their concerns about the government’s ability to achieve a meaningful simplification of the tax system. They emphasize that such an endeavor necessitates a well-defined plan, dedicated resources, clear accountability, and substantial investment. These organizations are dedicated to aiding the efforts to incorporate simplification into tax policy and administrative design. While they acknowledge that the simplification measures introduced in the Spring Budget of 2023 represent a positive step forward, they also note that these changes have a limited scope.”
