AIA speech encourages Corporation Tax debate.

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

A recent Association of International Accountants‘ article reports, Tax expert Richard Murphy, the keynote speaker at AIA’s Founders’ Lecture, stimulated a lively debate about the future of corporation tax when he called for an all-encompassing reform of the current ‘Cortina’ model of corporation tax system. Although the speech was made as long ago as 10 September, it is still proving news worthy, with Finance Week printing it in its entirety.

In the speech Richard said he believes that the existing single tax system is outdated and no longer works for all sizes of company. Instead, he proposes that corporation tax should be split in two with the introduction of a new small business tax and a separate one for large and multinational companies.
