HM Treasury call for representations for Autumn Statement 2015

Published on 16 October 2015

The LITRG has responded to HM Treasury’s call for representations for the Autumn Statement 2015 from the perspective of the low-income unrepresented taxpayer. Our representations follow the main points of our manifesto, published earlier this year, and are listed below.

Our representations have the following main themes:

  • Improve the PAYE system to bring greater clarity and accuracy for taxpayers, and lower administrative costs
  • Better communication and education on tax matters by government departments
  • Make the tax system as accessible as possible for unrepresented taxpayers
  • Improve how the tax and benefits systems work together
  • A tax system that recognises the distinctive challenges of self-employment

The LITRG response can be found here.
