Pandora Papers: Close tax loopholes for the rich and powerful
We urge you to review the tax breaks for corporates and wealthy individuals to ensure they give value for money, increase the resources available to HMRC to enforce UK tax legislation and tighten the regulation of accountants, lawyers and bankers.
Why is this important?
The Pandora Papers have exposed how the rich and powerful can use offshore structures to slash their tax bills and hide what they’re up to. A former UK prime minister, a major Conservative donor and even the Crown Estate are caught up in the story.
It is deeply unfair to see rich people and politicians paying less tax at the same time that the government is raising taxes on ordinary workers.
The Prime Minister and his government have to stand up and fix the system. This means closing loopholes and investing properly in HMRC so that everyone pays their fair share. The government should finally introduce the stalled plan to shine a light over the offshore owners of UK property.
