Easy solution to tax return issue

Published 08/04/2016

With so much legitimate interest in public figures' tax affairs, yet reluctance to divulge actual earnings, there is a very easy way for high-profile individuals to demonstrate that they are paying their fair shares of UK tax.

I suggest the Government contracts with a firm of accountants to whom anyone can submit tax returns and receive a publishable certificate of probity. No actual figures need to be published.
