How to reduce the burden of tax returns upon millions of self-employed taxpayers

The time has surely come to reduce the burden of tax returns on millions of taxpayers.

One of the best series of events – at least in my view(!) – is the History of Tax events run by the Worshipful Company of Tax Advisers and often hosted by the CIOT (see bit.ly/3lCfLxn). It was here I learnt about the precedent value of the Magna Carta (Professor Jane Frecknall-Hughes) and in October 2011 about the invention of the PAYE system, from John Pearce.
