and we are investigating abusive use of partnerships

Can anyone point me to further detail concerning today's statement by the Chancellor "and we are investigating abusive use of partnerships."?

I assume...

... it refers to making employees members of LLP, such that they're taxed as partners?

Hybrid structures?

What about hybrids?

Also loans to LLPs instead of overdrawn directors loans.

Husband & Wife?

These types of partnership have long been an irritant

Paragraph 2.107

Looks like the various partnership loss avoidance schemes. Also tax mismatch schemes (see the written ministerial statement).

I don't think the other sorts of partnerships you refer to could be considered "abusive"

Maybe forcing employees to become partners and loose rights

But No, wasn't that last months policy initiative?
