has this actually raised any more tax?

"According to the Treasury, the government has raised £550m in Income Tax and National Insurance contributions in the first 12 months since it was introduced."

No doubt this figure is juiced but also this is paid for by higher contractor rates to public bodies which is tax payers money, so basically HMRC have quite likely goosed 550mil from the tax payers, then given it back to them and expect them to be grateful?

They were always going to roll it into the private sector so the consultation was fake, it will have an impact in how flexible business can be and my rates will go up to cover any extras.
