So, isn't it time for a change?
Here's what I suggest (speaking as someone who is self-employed):-
1. have a tax-free income threshold of £10,000
2. then tax all income earned above that threshold at the same percentage (somewhere between 20 and 25%).
3. leave it up to each individual tax payer to claim back what they think they are owed in terms of legitimate work-related expenses (and ensure the burden of proof is on them not their accountants).
4. dis-allow all tax avoidance with a zero tolerance approach.
Sounds fair and easy to me
