Another method of getting more money from us. At the moment I pay £130 a year and all I get for it is another letter 12 months later asking for another years money, with other no communications in between

If we are having a points system, then can we have it in both directions as I am still trying to get reply's to 2 letters I sent to the Revenue in December 2016 re errors they have made in respect of my clients affairs, both in respect of NIC adjustments they wrongly made to my clients submitted Tax Returns.

I accept that there is only talk of 55% Tax Rate at the moment. However, this could increase as it did in the 1970's. I remember the Investment surcharge stated at 5% and then moved up to 15%. Likewise, the general top rate of tax increased year by year. There is nothing to stop JC dropping the bands at which higher rates of Tax start.
I worked in the Accountancy industry in the 1970's and remember my firm having to get special permission in order to give me a realistic pay increase and a promotion as such things were not allowed in those days because of the poor state of the government finances.
Please remember the winter of dis-content which saw the Labour government kicked out of power in 1979 because of these measures.
At least TB and GB did not try to repeat them when they took power in 1997.
With JC promised spend on everything that appears to be a vote winner, where is he going to raise the Revenue?
Unfortunately, I live in a real world where what I spend has to be earned. Governments and Councils just raise taxes and rates, so the working people/businesses end up paying for their miss spent cash ideas.
Ask people who the rich are and they will say somebody earning more than themselves. Likewise, who are the poor and it is somebody earning less than themselves.
It reminds you of the classic TV sketch of I look up to him but down to him by the 2 Ronnie's.
I will leave it at that so you can go back to your Labour canversing in your neighbourhood

I well remember the Labour government of the late 1970's when income over £20,000 after personal allowances was Taxed at 83%, plus another 15% on investment income making 98%.
Mrs T reduced this to 60% when she took office in 1979, and surprise, the actual Tax collect went up.
Will JC take this into account before he raises tax for so call high earners. I doubt this.
Will the last so called rich person please turn the light switch off when they leave the Country again.

All the figures quoted appear to be for year one costs. What will be the costs in year two onwards for yearly updates to soft wear programmes etc.
Also, has anybody took into account the cost of purchasing a printer to keep a hard copy for their accountants.
