A letter from Rt. Hon. Michael Jack to Margaret Hodge MP about the recent PAC report on tax avoidance and the role of large firms
On 1 May the Chairman of the OTS, Rt. Hon. Michael Jack, wrote to the Chair of the Public Accounts Committee, Margaret Hodge MP, about the recent PAC report ‘Tax avoidance: the role of large accountancy firms’.
Although the report focused on tax avoidance, it also made some references to our work. Margaret Hodge’s reply confirms that “the PAC is supportive of the work of the Office of Tax Simplification” and that the OTS “has an important role to play by providing an independent voice and objective recommendations [for tax simplification].”
