Tax & NIC would have been due for pay from the PSCs to their directors/presenters in any case.
Is it that payments from the BBC are now trapped by IR35 and attract tax/NIC?

Do have to wonder who ICAEW is interested in apart from the sizeable practices.
It’s certainly not those in industry/commerce or the small practitioner.
Glad I’m retired after 49 years continual activity.

The Tudor Henrys have a lot to answer for.
Likely an apology statement from Buckingham Palace?

This morning it would appear the 'Boris bounce' in polls was merely disturbance in the ether.
Like his two predecessors all too soon he will have to eat his lugubrious and fanciful rants and accept the reality about which the business and finance community has been warning for some four years.

After qualifying with first-time passes in articles, leaving the firm in which I qualified after a derisory salary offer and further time 'handcuffs', then two years with a national/international firm in one of their provincial offices I decided the treadmill of professional office life was not for me.
Branching out into industry, commerce and the public sector has kept me well satisfied over the decades.
Stresses, yes, but largely under my own control, the ability to gauge them and preserve my health.

If there is a god, I would implore it/her/him to help us, as getting sense from any Government of the last decade has been a fraught mission.
Had Theresa May and her Cabinet engaged in the most basic business tactic of preparing a plan for leaving the EU UK Ltd might not have been in such a mess, but then the Cameron/Osborne duo never contemplated a Plan B either.
Fine words from Javid but background of him and his cohorts do not inspire.

4. Be especially nice to your children and (any) grandchildren - they will have the choice of your care home as God's waiting-room.

Would be delighted to offer the chance but we are in the middle of a three-year term and the field is quite narrow being a Town Council.
If you fancy a trip anyway with a bit of detective work try BN25 & I’ll treat you to lunch.

Still working full time at 71 and enjoying it my thoughts are that moving jobs is a way to relieve the monotony.
Mind you I made that choice in 1972 two years after qualifying when I decided that professional office life offered 35+ years of repetition or if specialising in taxation multiple Finance Acts to master.
Industry commerce & the public sector have served me well - current role is 5 minutes from home on the Sussex coast & I write this watching the azure waves of the English Channel washing up on a shingle beach - and a salary keeps rolling in.

I think the point is that, magically, a new set of accounts appeared!
