HMRC: We 'rigorously tested' IR35 tax-check tool... but have almost nothing to show for it



The Conservative motto "Do as I say not as I do"

Philip Hammond's company paid just £5964 corporation tax on $1.6M profit; I have paid more corporation tax each year on a fraction of the turnover; what was that about avoiding paying the correct tax each year?

Aussies just will not let us win at anything

I thought we had a world class moronic politicians in the UK, but the aussies will not us win at anything.

Provide an argument for remain based on real world facts and/or data, i.e. no opinions and no FUD?


From the electoral commission:

Remain: 16,141,241 (48.1%)

Leave: 17,410,742 (51.9%)

Total Electorate: 46,500,001

Turnout: 72.2%

Looks resounding to me!

"As the deadline approaches, the pound is likely to continue to decline, costs are likely to increase, and the numbers of firms hurt rather than helped is likely to increase."

Sounds like one of those things called an opinion.



If you want to stay in the EU I have a better idea, how about making arguments based on verifiable real world fact and/or data as opposed to FUD and opinion; to give you a helping hand here is an example of a leave argument; at the time of the referendum the EU accounted for approximately 16-17% or world GDP and declining (in the 70s it was 30% plus), that means that 83-84% resides in the rest of the world; I back trade with the rest of the world unencumbered by EU protectionist crony corporatism; a small percentage of something big is probably going to be worth more than a large percentage of something small and getting smaller in long term.

You may also like to explore the lack of democracy (law originating from the commission), systemic corruption (accounts not signed off for 20+ years).

Ongoing game of Galileo chicken goes up a notch as the UK talks refunds


The EU 27 run a 70+ billion pound surplus with the UK; take Germany out of the picture and the UK pays in more than the other 26 together; when the cash cow UK leaves, the club will probably become insolvent.

There is a need for an investigation into the donation given to the blue socialists party and its individual MPs.


Re: The UK Tax system is no longer fit for purpose.

Flat rate tax system, try a couple of the Baltic states and Russia for starters. By regressive do you mean penalising people who work harder and consequently earner a little bit more? I have a bad back from carrying useless permies!

Re: Well

I don't recall having a vote on 27 members of the commission. The 28th (UK) has never been elected to anything, just a Cameron crony.
