Description

Yes Haddington and Common Weal East Lothian present ...

A better way to fund our society?

Continuing our Doing things differently series, we are delighted to welcome two experts who will share their thoughts on a subject that affects all of us: taxation. Income tax, corporation tax, council tax... but before you doze off - please keep reading.

What if someone were to tell you we could remove all of these taxes and replace them with a single tax that's easy to understand? That that majority will end up paying considerably less? But that the government would have much more to spend each year? Or we could just carry on as we have done up to now. Where those with the most can afford to reduce their tax liabilities, leaving the rest of us to pick up the tab.

Let's do it differently.

Speakers:

  • Graeme McCormick 'Annual Ground Rent: A practical approach'
    Director, Business for Scotland and Solicitor specialising in property and conveyancing law

  • George Kerevan 'An Economist Point of View'
    Economist, journalist, former SNP MP for East Lothian, Member of Tresury Select Committee 2015-17

  • Hosted by: Vicky Swann, Common Weal East Lothian
