A Labour government would cut business rates for small companies’ premises, but increase the corporation tax that bigger firms pay on their profits, Mr Miliband will tell his party conference.
You’re going to cock up the tax system even more? Move from a low deadweight cost tax to a high one? Increase the amount of economic activity that doesn’t happen for the same damn revenue collected?
Are you really an ignorant cock-knobbler or are you just playing one on the internet?
Just in case you really are an ignorant cock-knobbler, try looking at this.
Repeated taxation of real property (ie, business rates, land taxes etc) has the lowest deadweight costs of all forms of taxation. Corporation tax is at the other end of the spectrum, the highest (except for that terrible abortion that is an FTT). You are moving the tax system from a position which destroys the least wealth for the income produced to one that destroys the most for the income produced.
You really are ignorant, aren’t you? Cock-knobbler or not.
