IR35

Greenheys | | Permalink

2.203 IR35 – Following the publication of the OTS review of small business tax, the Government commits to making clear improvements in the way IR35 is administered. These improvements will include setting up a dedicated helpline staffed by specialists, publishing Budget 2011 71 guidance on those types of cases HMRC view as outside the scope of IR35, targeting compliance activity by restricting reviews to high risk cases and setting up an IR35 Forum which will monitor HMRC’s new approach. The Government has decided to retain IR35, as abolition would put substantial revenue at risk.

Enough is enough.  Vote UKIP.

Show me the money ...

"as abolition would put substantial revenue at risk."

I thought the Treasury had been unable/unwilling to quantify the amount raised ?
