Industry reps told the UK taxman everything wrong with extending IR35. What happened next will astound you

Reg Reader 1

As usual and common across the world, the Government is going after the wrong group to increase its income through taxation. Government needs to be going after Corporations to increase its taxable income not us in the populace. The problem is that Corporations have bought and built very favourable tax laws and can afford to fight the Government in court. Then add in the graft and corruption at the highest levels, which is business as usual, and you know it'll be us getting screwed over. Of course, the problem isn't just taxation but how Globalization has played out. Governments everywhere know this isn't sustainable if we are to keep any semblance of our standard of living but the graft and corruption at the top make change unlikely.
