Re: Why only IT?
What, only tax stupid people*?
Should have said- Stop extra-taxing smart people**
*Some might say only stupid people pay tax... usually smart, expensive accountants.
**HMRC seem to make the distinction. A contract plumber, accountant or ball-kicker isn't subject to IR35, but 'Because IT' seems to be a magic 'Pay More' reason. The same Tax-Reduction methods are available to all (Dividends, etc) but only IT workers have to jump though the hoops.
