I have a client who runs a sports club, they run the bar and the food is operated by another party. It would seem that there would be nothing which would not preclude the £10 limit being applied to the soft drinks purchased from the sports club and also the meal from the catering company as they will come from seperate invoices.

We have the same issue. Did you get a response from HMRC Justine?

Thanks Tim. It certainly
Thanks Tim. It certainly has, how did I miss those!

They clamped down on this sort of area in cricket clubs recently. I guess it is only a matter of time until they look at other sports. Probably heightened by your post which will be swallowed up by the Connect super computer and spit out a taskforce in this area.

Violence and world peace
It is this type of scheme which the general public get particularly angered by. Circular transfers of money, no element of commercial risk and use of overseas entities, even a Jersey charity. some of the nuances were interesting and it was helpful for the Tribunal to cover each aspect of the case regardless that it failed on question 1. being a genuine trade. It actually failed on a number of counts and would have been caught by Ramsay even if the other aspects had been accepted.
I particularly like the quote "it does not seem to me however much permissible violence one does to the language that it is possible to say that £5m is representative of £61.64.
Prayer Condition clause in this case raised a small smile. For the assignment of rights payment of £100 and attendence by the assignee before a solictor practicing in London in order to recite the name of the trader "pray to God of the Christian church for World Peace".

Should the golf club be putting in a provisional claim for refund pending this case to keep open the 4 year claim window or will the ability to claim be based on 4 years from the date of HMRC admitting defeat on the position?

I just called the business records check number as we received an agent copy of the notice. They accept agents responses and it is a quick process to answer the questions and put the clients mind at rest. But remember you need to know about your client as they have to ask the questions to you as if you are the client as they don't have an alternate questionnaire.

Personal service company?
Some accountants are advocating the payment of a salary of £15,000 from personal service companies to negate the IR35 issues.
I am aware this figure changes from accountant to accountant.
You should check whether this would apply in this instance and if appropriate take advice from your PI provider.

I think carving a niche is what makes it interesting
Like everything accountancy world is what you make of it. The people who you meet and the type of work it entails. Auditor, internal accountant, tax advisor, corporate financier & management accountant all very different fields to name but a few. Many start with the fundamental ICAEW qualification and specialise beyond there.
From your background if this is a route you pursue perhaps you would be suited to working on some of the Biotech industries around the Cambridge area? you clearly have insight in that field as I find makes a significant difference to have a real knowledge of their business when advising them.
I have a number of contacts at the Big accountancy firm in that region if you would find it helpful to speak with them.
But last of all good luck in whatever you choose.

Current / capital account
From the transactions you have indicated I cannot see how you have created additional funds within capital account/current account available for distribution. Unless you are looking to release exisiting capital.
