My thanks to a loyal reader (Tonk) who pointed out that, owing to me adjusting the settings on this site, in order for people to comment they had to sign up to Google.

I have gone back to the original settings, and there is now no need to sign up to Google in order to post a comment.

    BRITAIN’S tax laws are too complex and must be radically simplified if HM Revenue & Customs is to stop accountants finding loopholes, according to a report released today by an influential group of MPs.

    The Public Accounts Select Committee has been investigating tax avoidance by multinational companies and concluded that the big four accountants – KPMG, Ernst & Young, PwC, and Deloitte – “are still devising complex schemes that look artificial”.

    The MPs suggest there should be a government-backed code of conduct for tax advisers, greater transparency on the tax affairs of individual companies, and the wholesale reform of international tax law.

    The MPs also attacked the practice of seconding staff from the Big Four accountancy firms to the Treasury to help draft tax law. “We are concerned that the very people who provide this advice then go on to advise their clients how to use those laws to avoid tax,” they said.

  2. Thanks, Ken - I was on the point of contacting you to ask what was going on. I'm getting pissed off with the great Google for constantly trying to extract my phone number (in case I forget my password - yeah, right!!!), and suggesting I use my real name instead of a nickname of my choosing.
