Capital Gains Tax – The Petition

Ray Stewart General Leave a Comment

Further to my recent post on the drastic changes to Capital Gains Tax recently proposed by the Chancellor, Alistair Darling, I am pleased to pass on the address of a digital petition being mounted to try and persuade the Government that these changes are unwelcome, unfair, and dis-encourage entrepreneurs investing in the future.

Please click on the link and make your way to the petition site now at and add your own name to the thousands already there.

As much as our Government dismisses as irrelevant the views of ordinary people, if enough concerned business people sign this digital petition perhaps, just perhaps, even the blinkered people in Government might notice the strength of feeling that this move has aroused, and that we, the people, have had enough of being dumped upon.

I am a qualified Certified Practising Accountant having passed my final exams way back in 1981. I actually can’t believe that was 37 years ago!! Anyway, I am now in my 60’s and I have been running my own business since May 1983. And before you ask, no, I have never regretted a moment of it! Part of the membership requirements of my professional body now dictate that I spend quite a lot of time on “CPD” - continuing professional education (one of their better ideas) - and over the last two years I decided to study business growth and marketing. I have learnt such a lot and that knowledge has radically changed my old “accountants” approach to business. It has made such a difference to the way I work and operate I feel that I just have to pass on this knowledge. It is simply too powerful to hold back!! - but I will try and do it in simple terms rather than expecting you to spend hours, as I had to, working through the difficult language that trainers seem to use to pass on their concepts. I hope you find the blog a useful resource and interesting place to visit as the months pass. I will do my best to keep up the flow - but if there are any topics you would like me to cover, then please let me know. Ray Stewart
