London: Deloitte UK has called for more consistency from the British government on taxes, the Daily Telegraph said on Monday, quoting the head of the accounting firm.

Chief executive and senior partner David Sproul of Deloitte UK told the newspaper that a number of companies have put their plans to move to the United Kingdom on hold as a result of the mixed messages on taxes from the Treasury and the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee (Pac).

“On the one hand, you’ve got a government pursuing a tax strategy to make the UK one of the most completive regimes,” Sproul was quoted as saying. “But then you’ve got a push by the PAC and by others to say... we want to make sure everyone’s paying their fair share of tax and we’ll determine what that fair share of tax is.”
