Taxation often represents one of the largest single costs a business has to meet and businesses of all types and sizes, as well as private individuals, are rightly anxious to minimise their exposure to tax. Yet our tax system is one of the most complex in the industrialised world. Many of the incentives introduced in recent budgets to encourage saving and investment only serve to increase the complexity of the system as a whole.
