Forum of Private Business welcomes tax simplification

The Forum of Private Business has welcomed the Government's launch of the Small Business Online Forum enabling small and micro businesses to get quick and easy advice on their tax issues.

Ian Cass, Chief Executive of The Forum of Private Business, commented: “We have been consistently asking the Government and HMRC, on our members behalf, for a simplification of all things tax related for Small Businesses.

“Today's full launch of HMRC's Online Forum is an excellent step in the right direction in giving our member businesses access to an easy user-friendly source of advice. We look forward to working positively with HMRC as the Forum develops.”
