I have evidence of banks offering interest free loans to "gold chip"clients who don't ask for or even need them. They are being offered without guarantees. It smacks of banks using up their loan pot allowance given to them by the government on zero risk lending.

You really do have to wonder who in HMRC is making the decision to repeatedly take these cases to tribunal. Someone should ask for a freedom of information act request and ask for IR35 tax yield figures ... they would be revealing I suggest.

Utopia doesn't exist unfortunately or anything remotely close to that.
The draw of industry, the morality (or lack of) of agencies and the loyalty of people make this a difficult task.
Outsourcing is the way ..

5th April 2018 implementation ?
It's almost as comical as Donald Trump's victory speech

Perhaps they should concentrate on their currently fading business model instead of trying to make up the shortfall with aggressive planning.

Time to admit
I hope the Government will now admit that IR35 has been a waste of time and resources with the tax yield that has been generated from it.
This dividend tax gives them the excuse now to put this farce to bed.

"Elegant interpretation" is putting things very politely. Most SDLT advisers consider the CA decision to be a pretty poor one (i.e. no thorough/proper analysis of the legislation - unlike in the Upper Tribunal) and methinks the taxpayer will go on to the Supreme Court.
Almost certainly with 68 million at stake. A relatively small contribution from participants towards barristers and onto the next stage. No doubt this "success" will become another HMRC marketing tool

Would it ever be any different with any "upgrades" HMRC bring in. Another farce that will never quite be right.

god help us
Lets hope this test kit isn't drawn up by the same HMRC monkeys that have been hauling pointless test cases through the IR35 tribunal circuit
Does it come with litmus paper ?

Funny how articles such as this one never actually come as a surprise to me anymore.
