As we are approaching elections, the focus has centred on examining where there might be differences in economic policy between the parties. Unfortunately for Labour, many of its distinctive tax ambitions, such as abolishing non-dom status and extending the windfall tax on oil and gas companies -have already been taken up and are being implemented by the Conservatives What is more is that future proceeds from these recently announced changes by Jeremy Hunt will be eaten up by the extra tax giveaways announced by Jeremy Hunt in the autumn statement and the March 6 budget. Only one signature Labour tax policy seems to be still there, namely the intention to exclude the supply of education by independent schools from the list of bodies eligible for VAT tax exemptions and expect them to start charging VAT on private school fees.
