What will be different than quarterly Corporation Tax?
Do HMRC propose to change the present system for those companies who have to pay quarterly CT on account?
If not, why would the requirement for all other taxpayers have to be any different?
It appears to me that none of the qualified accountants that are employed by HMRC have been consulted about the practicality of quarterly reports in smaller enterprises.

If ever there were a case for keeping most bank accounts outside the UK this is it.
Clearly the won't pays will find methods to keep all but day to day monies out of UK bank accounts

When I was in practice before I retired I certainly needed the qualification even though I had a relatively small practice. If I were still working I would now be applying for a probate licence. Admittedly most of the client work could have been done without being qualified but the ones like charities and property companies were not all audit exempt. Those represented good fees and from the answers Paul Scholes gives on Aweb I am surprised to find that he no longer needs his qualification.

What these comments has missed is the damage done to the second state pension when the state pension regime changed during the previous coalition government. Until that change there was less incentive for forward seeing businessmen to keep their salaries very low and remunerate themselves largely in dividend form.

You're forgetting the saving of £31K x 2% corporation tax = £620 bringing your figure down to

IMHO taxpayer choice would enable efficiencies to be effected. As with Utilities and the NHS it should be possible for the taxpayer to decide which particular office of HMRC all their dealings should be with and it should also be made simple for that choice to be changed.
That, together with a proper assessment of effectiveness based on client churn would enable a degree of competition to exist and thus in theory help to reduce the amount of maladministration and frustration that now seems to be prevalent.
Please note that I am not suggesting privatisation of HMRC.

Nobody has cited Trusts and Estates in these comments. This is big brother and therefore dangerous from a political point of view.

Sale or advice?
It seems to me that there is a vast difference between a client seeking tax minimising advice and a promoter actively selling a tax avoidance scheme avoidance scheme for a prearranged fee. It is promoted schemes that need to be declared.
The fact that several clients are given similar advice is surely irrelevant.

salary v dividend
I have never quite understood why pension provision is often overlooked when the objective is to reduce National Insurance liability.
This will be even more necessary when the new rules come into effect from 2015-16.
