Born's already mentioned this so without repeating myself, or him, I'm not suggesting dicking over anyone. I'm simply trying to explain how corporation tax harms the economy along with every other tax that is levied against the people of Britain. Rich get richer because they use legal strategies to minimize their outgoings. Same as you do. The poor get poorer because the standard of government in the UK insists on raising taxation to make up for their mismanagement across the board. At the risk of sounding like a stuck record 100% of taxes on everything are paid for by people.
You're saying this property levy is fairer than council tax. I agree with you. However I'm also saying that neither tax is a fair at all and should be abolished completely so you don't have to pay either.
Corporation tax is levied and all it does is suck money away from wages, pensions, expansion, and research and development.
This cost regardless of how you view it is 100% passed on to people either through low wages or the price you pay at the check out. An argument for higher corporation tax (or any tax on business for that matter) is an argument for lower wages, less pension benefits, sh*tty low skilled jobs and higher prices for goods and services provided by any of the business' that choose to trade in any country where they're taxed.
With regard to your point regarding the quality of jobs coming to the UK I agree with you. The start of this is to lower the costs at which businesses have to bear to trade. The vast bulk of this is taxation. Lower business running costs leads to better jobs and benefits, lower prices etc because this cost isn't passed on to the consumer at the point of sale. VAT is 20% a business pays that rate and then passes it on to the consumer through increased pricing. That is just one example of how business costs are levied on people.
Max argues that we should have a level playing field. I fully agree with him although I believe that the level playing field should be set at zero for everyone. I'm simply not arguing in favour of rich versus poor but I understand that if that if a business pays low overheards the customer and employee benefit through lower costs of running and higher wages and greater job safisfaction respectively.
Business will fight to work here because their operating costs are conducive to running a successful and profitable business. That's the whole reason they exist. They and the people they employ generate wealth by providing jobs and goods and services. Quality improves all around.
People should also pay lower taxes so that that the cost of living is conducive to running a successful and profitable life. That's the whole reason we exist. When you have more money in your pocket you have the options to spend money on that life or choose to save if you wish to. Wealth insulates us from bad times and makes them bearable along with the good times where you can actually enjoy them. Quality improves all around.
Again Max I agree with you. They should be taxed at the same rate as the working people in Britain. That rate should be zero.
I agree that this property levy is fairer than the currently council tax system. Where I disagree is the neither tax is fundamentally fair or moral and should be abolished entirely. The amount should be zero. The fairest tax there is.
