Tax after coronavirus


This inquiry will examine the tax system following the reconstruction of the economy after the unprecedented economic fallout of the coronavirus crisis.

It will look at what the major long-term pressures on the UK tax system are, what more the UK can do to protect its tax base from globalisation and technological change, and whether such pressures should be met with tax reform.

The Committee will also seek evidence on what overall level of taxation the economy can bear, the role of tax reliefs in rebuilding the economy, and whether there is a role for windfall taxes in the post-coronavirus world.

Read theĀ call for evidence for more detail about the inquiry.
