The UK Tax Regime - What Impact Does It Have On Investment, Performance and Productivity?

You might not be interested in tax but tax is interested in you. It may not be something that has crossed the mind of most HR professionals but it is likely to rise up their agenda over the coming years. The upward pressure on public spending caused by ageing populations mean that taxes will have to increase, services will have to be cut or public debt levels will have to rise beyond what most economists believe is sustainable in the long-term. Something will have to give and at some point over the next decade the problem will become acute. This report focuses on the major direct taxes and those that impact most directly on business and employment.
