Yes take the Corporation Tax down to zero over time

but there should be a level playing field.

At the moment multinationals pay next to nothing in Corporation Tax because they divert US generated profits to offshore tax havens. (And other tax breaks and and tax avoidance schemes.)

While small and medium sized business are paying 25 to 30% (after taking their tax breaks from the official 35%).

It's the small and medium sized business that are the real jobs and wealth creators.

A small coffee shop owner has to compete with Starbucks paying nothing in Corporation Tax.

There was a recent outcry in the UK - Starbucks are now going to pay some Corporation Tax because of a consumer boycott.
