Data Required For Transaction Tax
Gross transactions by type across all UK financial institutions
Total treasury revenue from all sources
National debt to IMF
Interest paid on uk national debt
Total cost of all personnel involved in administration / enforcement of existing system
Cost of maintaining government buildings used for tax purposes
Environmental cost, energy, paper / carbon footprint
Capital value of all buildings no longer needed
Use of Data
Gross bank transaction
data would provide a baseline in order to assess the percentage required to maintain stable government
Bacs transactions alone are £91.9 trillion. £91,900,000,000,000. Debit cards 35 Billion
Every deposit would count, no exceptions.
This figure + 10% will be taken to ensure government receipts will cover expenditure and any contingencies arising during the transition period.
National debt and interest
When the new system goes live, assume 5th April. The effects would be instant, an algorithm applied to all accounts would feed directly to the treasury. No UK business or individual would need to keep accounts for tax purposes. Accountants could concentrate on making business profitable. However the previous years tax returns would still have to be honoured, the proceeds of which would go towards paying off the national debt and reducing interest.
This will be used during the transaction period it would directly effect employment. There is a massive need for staff in the NHS and social sector. make salaries attractive enough to appeal to individuals no longer needed in the financial sector. This could be funded from the savings made as a result of closing and selling redundant government buildings.
Any additional information regarding fuel duty and road fund license may be useful. The existing system has been unfair for many years. A surcharge on the base rate and directed to the ministry of transportation, would ensure everyone will pay their fair share depending upon how large the vehicle is and distance traveled .
