Small businesses have too much government paperwork, red tape and tax. Please take any small business out of VAT that has a turnover less than £250,000 p.a.. For the small amount I have to pay, it is a lot of work for me, and probably costs HMRC a dispoportionate amount to collect it.

Why is this idea important?

The low VAT threshold encourages a cash economy, and therefore income tax is lost to HRMC as people seek to avoid it, so this may increase the tax take. It would certainly reduce HMRC staff numbers.
