The All-Party Parliamentary Loan Charge and Taxpayer Fairness Group (Loan Charge and Taxpayer Fairness APPG) is an official Parliamentary Group comprising of Parliamentarians of all parties from both Houses of Parliament. Members of the APPG have concerns about the nature and impact of the ‘2019 Loan Charge’ and they also have concerns about the wider context of fairness of tax legislation and about HMRC’s conduct in enforcing it.

The inaugural meeting of the Loan Charge APPG in the current parliament was held on 7th January 2020 when Parliamentarians voted to form the Group and to appoint the officers. The Loan Charge APPG is the successor to the previous Loan Charge APPG which was established in the last parliament in January 2019.
