Tax hikes in a number of areas are being considered by the Treasury to deal with the cost of the coronavirus, reports have emerged this morning.
Up to £20bn ($26.7bn) could be raised by upping capital gains and corporation tax, changes that could come into effect as soon as the November budget, according to the Sunday Times.
Other proposals have included a revamp of inheritance tax and an introduction of a digital sales tax, according to the paper.
The report suggested that chancellor Rishi Sunak could take aim at pensions, businesses, the wealthy and foreign aid.
The aid budget has already been cut by £2.9bn from £15.8bn this year.
