Abstract :

The First World War created wide-scale problems in budgeting and logistics to countries that were directly involved. Great Britain answered the problem by developing a system of taxation quite different from its European counterparts. It is a system characterized by secrecy and compartmentalization as opposed to corporatism. Despite the veil of secrecy, equitability in taxation was ensured.
