- 145. New Research: £28.5 billion lost to black market alcohol, tobacco and diesel in just five years...
The TaxPayers’ Alliance (TPA) has revealed that £28.5 billion of tax revenue has been lost to the illicit market in spirits, beer, cigarettes, hand rolling tobacco and diesel between 2005-06 and 2009-10. The tax gap, detailed in an annual report from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), would have been more than enough to fund a 1p cut in the basic rate of Income Tax.

- 146. George Osborne's Moral Mission - to Revolutionise Britain's Tax System - Starts Here
Details of the government’s “grand plan” to merge National Insurance (NI) and Income Tax were briefed out this weekend. Yesterday, Downing Street played down the speculation, with the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesperson telling journalists the reports were “entirely news to them”. The Chancellor is said to have considered announcing the change at the last Budget, but the decision was postponed over doubts about whether the two existing computer systems could be integrated without it all going a bit Universal Credit. You can hardly blame Number 10 for exercising caution.

- 147. The EU seeks more austerity and less growth
Several contributors want to hear more about the many ways in which the EU affects or controls our lives. There are all too many ways, following years of EU directives and regulations, based on the huge powers transferred in The Treaties of Rome, Nice, Amsterdam and Lisbon, to name but four that rarely get mentioned.In recent years the EU has been granted large new powers to regulate banks and financial institutions. This week-end reports ciruclated that the EU is now considering imposing capital surcharges of as much as 10% of a bank’s assets on EU large banks on top of the minimum 7% capital ratio required already.The aim is to stop EU banks getting into the mess they got into in the 2008-12 period. That is a worthy aim, but this remedy does not seem to be based on any sensible analysis of why various large EU banks got into difficulties in that period or what is needed to get us out of the mess. There is little recognition that Central Banks and regulators got it wrong as well as the commercial banks, producing a toxic mixture.

- 148. Robert Halfon MP: Letâ€™s give White Van Conservatism wheels â€“ scrap the 3p fuel tax rise!
On Tuesday, I tabled a Private Members Bill on petrol prices, supported by many other Conservative backbenchers, as well as MPs from Northern Ireland, and Scotland. (You can see an extract in the short video above.) The idea behind it was very simple: that fuel tax should be crystal clear to motorists. In essence, this would sweep away the complex regulations about what fuel garages can and cannot put on their till receipts, and replace them with one simple rule. That whenever you fill up the family car, the till receipt should say in black and white how much fuel duty, VAT, and petrol you have paid. It should also say how much is actually being spent on Britain’s roads. Simple. This would make the tax system more honest; it would be a big deterrent against any future tax-rises; and it would add pressure on the oil companies to be fair.

- 149. The dandy with a will of iron: He was a Madonna fan and would be Oscar Wilde. But, as a new...
While the rest of his friends mucked about on the number 9 bus on the journey home from school, the 16-year-old George Osborne clamped his pocket radio hard to his ear. It wasn’t the football results he was after — he was resolutely non-sporty — nor the latest single by Madonna, of whom he was a fervent fan.No, what the ferociously ambitious schoolboy was desperate to listen to was the Budget Speech, live. It was 1988, and the then Chancellor, Nigel Lawson, was delivering radical tax cuts for high earners. As the bus crossed Hammersmith Bridge towards Osborne’s Notting Hill home, he heard the Deputy Speaker halt the session as opposition MPs barracked the Chancellor for scything the top rate of income tax.Twenty-four years on, George Osborne now occupies the position of Chancellor and is uncomfortably aware of the unpopularity of tax cuts for high earners, which — thanks to the need to placate his Lib-Dem Coalition partners — almost derailed his own widely derided ‘omnishambles’ Budget earlier this year.

- 150. Tories' blistering attack on 'inert, scheming' Cable: Even some Lib Dems think Vince is lazy,...
Allies of David Cameron have attacked ‘inert’ Vince Cable and accused him of trying to drive a wedge between the Prime Minister and George Osborne over a mansion tax.Tory Ministers are furious at the Business Secretary’s attack on the Government’s ‘lack of direction’ in a leaked letter last week.Despite his denials, they believe that Liberal Democrat Mr Cable – or, more likely, his supporters – were behind it.Conservatives close to No 10 claim Mr Cable has stepped up his campaign to force Mr Cameron to back a mansion tax because it is one of the few policies over which Mr Cameron and the Chancellor disagree.They have now launched a provocative counter-attack by claiming Mr Cable is lazy – and they say that some Lib Dem Ministers agree.They want Mr Cameron to appoint a Tory to replace Mr Cable – possibly Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt.‘Vince spends more time hatching plots to promote himself than devising an effective policy on business,’ said one Tory with close links to Mr Cameron. ‘He is inert and some Lib Dem Ministers agree. The Business Department is lacking in ideas and drive.Last night, even allies of the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg were critical of Mr Cable. Speaking at the party’s spring conference in Gateshead, one said: ‘Vince is still behaving like an Opposition politician rather than a Minister.

- 151. The case for Swedish-style tax transparency – Telegraph Blogs
I'm half-attracted by Polly Toynbee's suggestion that all data held by the government, including tax returns, should be open to the public. Polly thinks that Nordic-style transparency would lead to Nordic-style income equality, but I'm not sure she's right. In any country, of course, some people will vote out of resentment. That is their tragedy: envy is an ugly and debilitating condition, but it is not nearly as widespread as its sufferers believe. The recent anger over top rates of pay had far more to do with the sense that some financiers were being rewarded for failure than with a general dislike of wealth. Nobody much minded gazillion-pound bonuses while their own ISAs were rising in value. It was only when their taxes were used to prop up incompetent banks that people objected. And who can blame them?

Looming tax hikes by France's new socialist government have triggered an exodus of the Gallic super-rich to 'wealth-friendly' nations like Britain and Switzerland.The latest estate agency figures have shown large numbers of France's most well-heeled families selling up and moving to neighbouring countries.Many are fleeing a proposed new higher tax rate of 75 per cent on all earnings over one million euros. (£780,000)The previous top tax bracket of 41 per cent on earnings over 72,000 euros is also set to increase to 45 per cent.

- 154. Value added tax - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A value added tax (VAT) is a form of consumption tax. From the perspective of the buyer, it is a tax on the purchase price. From that of the seller, it is a tax only on the "value added" to a product, material or service, from an accounting view, by his stage of its manufacture or distribution. The buyer remits to the government the difference between these two amounts, and retains the rest for himself to offset the taxes he had previously paid on the inputs.

- 155. Why George Osborne must keep on wielding the axe | Mail Online
Few chancellors of modern times have had less room to manoeuvre than George Osborne. He is a solo navigator through the deepest British recession since the Second World War, attempting to repair a broken and morally defunct banking system and weighed down by a meltdown in the eurozone over which the Government has no control. Yet there is no escaping the fact that Osborne and the independent Office for Budget Responsibility, which produces his economic forecasting, have been off beam in their projections for the nation’s return to prosperity.The failure of the economy to expand at all in 2012, and the slow growth expected over the next five years, means that Osborne will be borrowing £48billion extra between now and 2017-18.Moreover, like the Labour Chancellors before him, he made a budgetary promise when he came to office that he is now struggling to keep. Even after the terrible sacrifices made by the British people, at all levels of society, in the past two years, the national debt – the total sum of all borrowing down the decades – will not start to shrink until 2017.The difficulty with taming the awesome debt levels he inherited, which will peak at 79.9 per cent of the total production of the whole economy in 2015-16, could damage the Government’s claim to be turning the economy around.

- 156. The £450m toll of Osborne's Heritage Tax: How it hits churches, other listed buildings and even thatched roofs | Daily Mail
George Osborne’s plan to impose a ‘Heritage Tax’ on listed buildings would rake in almost half a billion pounds – with nearly a quarter coming from the Church of England.Figures buried in Treasury documents reveal the full implications of the Chancellor’s move to ‘simplify’ the VAT treatment of alterations to listed buildings.Grade One and Grade Two listed buildings currently incur VAT only on routine repair work, for example to a damaged roof, and not on improvement, alteration and restoration works.However, the exemption will end in October under new measures in the Budget and the rate will rise to the standard 20 per cent. In the next five years, the tax hike is expected to raise £450million for the Treasury. The Church estimates the move will cost congregations £20million a year – equal to £100million over the next five years.

- 157. Can innovation transform the public sector?
Many parts of the private sector are being changed dramatically by digital technology. If you want to buy a house you can now visit a range of properties on line and see their floor plans and their inside and outside appearance from your home computer. If you want to buy any good or service you can google it and see a list of competing offers, usually with prices. You can order on line from your armchair. If you want to find a new job there are electronic jobs boards with choices of openings on offer. You can bank online, insure your car on line, undertake a study course on line. The opportunities are endless. The role and nature of the estate agent, the insurance broker, the bank clerk and the employment agency have altered substantially.

- 158. Response to CBPP: Flat Income Taxes Donâ€™t Endanger Public Finances or Create Inequality | Tax...
A recent blog post by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) suggests that adopting a constitutional amendment to allow a progressive tax in Illinois would benefit the state due to the state’s high and rising inequality and its chronic budget problems. While CBPP is correct that a state’s tax structure can have a powerful effect on quality of life and business activity, the economic evidence shows that low, neutral taxes on consumption typically have the least damaging impact on the economy, while high, progressive income and corporate taxes damage economic growth the most.

It's time to stop feigning surprise and outrage when corporations relocate abroad. They're just logically and legally fleeing an aggressively confiscatory tax code."It ain't right," says President Barack Obama. American companies who dodge the taxman by merging with overseas rivals are "renouncing their U.S. citizenship" and should be branded "corporate deserters," he says. And in name of "economic patriotism," Obama wants Congress to quickly close the corporate "inversion" loophole so these Benedict Arnold multinationals keep paying their fair share to Uncle Sam.
