The Autumn Statement - the experts can't see the wood for the trees

Economia, the magazine of the Institute of the Chartered Accountants, described the reaction to the the Autumn Statement as "surprisingly muted" and PwC (PriceWaterhouseCoopers) said "Moving the world of tax compliance into the digital age is a really positive step. Helping people pay tax quickly and more easily will save time for taxpayers and HMRC".

Why do I think they're wrong?

Because small businesses and the self employed haven't realised (yet) what "moving the world of tax compliance into the digital age means". If you want to know read this.

And once they do know there will be an uproar. Whether or not that will change anything is a different matter.
