§ Sir F. Sanderson
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the increasing complexity of Income Tax returns and the frequent necessity of employing accountants, he will consider allowing a deduction from the taxable income of such accountancy fees before arriving at the net assessment for taxation purposes?
§ Mr. Butcher
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether employers who make allowances to employés who are serving with His Majesty's Forces, or to their wives and children, will be entitled to treat those allowances as admissible expenses for taxation purposes?
§ Captain Crookshank
Actual sums expended by employers in respect of allowances to employers who are serving with His Majesty's Forces or to the wives and children of such employés will be admitted as deductions in the computation of the profits of trades, etc., for purposes of Income Tax, National Defence Contribution and Excess Profits Tax.
