HMRC unfair to small businesses

Taxman’s unfair to target small business
The Daily Express’ political columnist Ross Clarke explains why he believes it is unfair that the taxman is targeting small businesses. He feels that the government has decided that it can’t or won’t tackle large multinational tax evaders, so they have decided to crack down on the little guy instead. Mr Clarke notes that honest tradesman will suffer as the taxman will launch more investigations that demand fussy details about transactions made years ago. He says tradesman that have lost their records face a situation in which they are treated as guilty until proved innocent. He concludes that the country needs a complete overhaul of the tax system to ensure that the rules are fair for all.
