Where is Miss Piggy when you need her? She can quote chapter and verse on this point.

Coincidentally, I was privileged to receive today the latest HMRC Business Help and Support e-mail. It states:

Hello colleague,

Do you represent directors of limited companies?

Do you have a client who is a director of a limited company? Are they the only person in the company paid above the secondary threshold? If so, please encourage them to stop claiming National Insurance Contributions (NICs) Employment Allowance now or they may have to pay interest and penalties. On top of this, they may have to pay back any underpaid employer NICs which could be up to £3000 a year.

I didn't know HMRC regarded us as colleagues, but HMRC's view is otherwise clear.

I got bored with it all. At the end of the day it is not worth arguing with Colin, is it?

There's not enough at stake. Most directors are on £8060 anyway.

Mine actually said 'Hello with my full name' not colleague!
Have you done something to upset Colin?
