The question is how much tax relief we want to spend on firms that might make their owners rich, but do little for the economy, or that would have been created anyway, without the relief?

Thanks- interesting thread. It is true that sensible people can have a real blind spot about changes that might reduce their personal wealth. But I worry that all the pre-budget publicity about entrepreneur’s relief will result in a big campaign from some people to oppose change.

Must-read thread from on why the Chancellor should press on with curbing Entrepreneurs' Relief. It's poor value for money, overwhelmingly benefits already wealthy people, and doesn't boost innovation. That's why we've called it the UK's worst tax break.

At a Holocaust memorial event yesterday I heard two amazing stories of survival, one Kindertransport boy and one from someone hidden by a brave dancer and her sister in Paris. There were so many terrible or indifferent people but also many wonderful individuals.

If I am ‘naive’, I think that a lot of other people are just as ‘naive’ as I am. If you really are an HMRC Press Officer, rather than responding to me impolitely on Twitter, as you have done, why not listen to me or contact me to discuss? You could learn something

I don't think banks, phone companies and organisations like HMRC realise how confusing and conducive to fraud it can be that they send so many messages about this that and the other. Often quite unnecessarily.

Yes it is better than it was procedurally but in practice the outcome is that spouses must share financial information and more often than not it will be the woman who is transferring her allowance, thus reducing male partner’s income if she starts to earn more.

I was working as tax lawyer in City firm and Inland Revenue would only talk to my husband about our tax - strong incentive to become tax academic. We changed that then but now have crept backwards with treatment of child benefit and married women’s allowance.
