Express.co.uk was told by an economist from the Institute of Economic Affairs, however, that it could be a “triple-taxation”.
Julian Jessop stated: “The problem with capital gains and inheritance taxes is that a lot are at risk of double or triple taxation.
“This refers to investments that are based on income people already pay tax on. Therefore, I believe you should tax capital and income. Otherwise you will discourage saving and investing.
It’s an example of how it’s not easy to win in this situation. If you really want more money from the economy, income should be more important than wealth.
He said, “I believe you should tax income at a similar rate regardless of source. But the problem is that aligning capital gains and income taxes can lead to double taxation.
Someone has earned their money, and then they put it into an asset. The company that owns that share also pays taxes. If you tax the income generated by that share at the same tax rate as ordinary income, it will end up being taxed at a higher rate, because it has already paid taxes for the profit that was generated.

UK business leaders warned the UK that an increase in National Insurance costs could threaten the country’s recovery.
Tony Danker, Confederation of British Industry director, has expressed concern: “I’m deeply concerned that the Government believes taxing business is not a consequence of growth. It might be more politically appealing.
It is not. It is self-destructive to raise business taxes so high that it blocks further investment.
