Together, the tax and welfare systems are fundamental to implementing the social and economic aims of government. These are the most important instruments that we have to provide a safety net, to provide for income redistribution, to pay for the needs of our society. Together the taxation and welfare systems help us create our own future. Continuing to build the best versions of these systems benefits not only ourselves but also the generations yet to come. That is why the Commission’s work will consider how best to deliver well-designed, coherent and straightforward taxation and welfare systems, to ensure a fully functioning, sustainable labour market, active inclusion and participation in society.
