Whilst reading the replies to Hywell's question on Al Fayed's forward tax agreement I noticed Roger Rabit's observation.
"Whether poster is a lecturer or student, or something else, the question is more interesting than many of the queries posted here, which consist of semi-competent people in practice asking basic questions.
Equipped with answers provided for free by others, they then proceed to charge their hapless clients - Good work!"
I read any answers quite regularly and I find it a very useful resource. Admittedly sometimes questions cover very basic issues, then again some questions cover issues that some of us may never have come across before whether they be basic or complex issues. The answer can be simple when you know. But if you look at the decided cases from the Tax Tribunal sometimes issues that appear simple give rise to lengthy decisions that show the issue was not straightforward.
I find Roger's comment very rude. What do you think?
