The CBI’s prayer: Lord, grant me tax compliance, but not yet

Posted on

I noticed this comment on the OECD BEPS process in the Independent:

A spokesperson for the UK’s CBI business lobby group urged governments to roll out the new rules at the same pace internationally to avoid conferring a competitive advantage on slow movers.

St Augustine is supposed to have once prayed for chastity, but not yet.

The CBI look like they're praying for tax compliance, but very definitely not yet.
