Last year, £35 billion of UK tax wasn’t collected. That is more than the government spends on police, old age social care, nursery places and buses combined. It amounts to almost 6% of all tax due to the government and it’s been about 6% a year for the last decade.
But who isn’t paying their tax? And what can be done about it? Dr Arun Advani from CAGE at the University of Warwick will reveal who is underpaying or avoiding tax in the UK, and uncover the policies that can be used to tackle this problem.
