"We are utterly cognizant of the impact that this will have."
Does he now win the prize for the most utterly predictable response (or rather non-response as the case may be) of the year I wonder?

But only the likes of the person in the above link would think otherwise (and granted there are plenty like him!).

Gains/losses on foreign currency bank accounts have not been subject to CGT since 6.4.12. https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-manuals/capital-gains-manual/cg78321

A waste of postage that. What % of these people will (properly) declare their gains? I would be amazed if it's more than 1%. A classic recent example of someone (an accountant no less) not understanding the above basic CGT issues is here: https://www.accountingweb.co.uk/any-answers/portuguese-tax-residency

Pretty bad journalism by Aweb not to mention the above Tory Donor BVI etc. issue. That's the only thing of any real interest here!

Yes; that's the point i.e. taxpayer was successful in Sloss re grounds for that reason.

They must be wondering How they lost. The above article would have benefited from comparing and contrasting Sloss v Revenue Scotland: http://taxtribunals.scot/decisions/%20FTSTC%201.pdf

Yes; the clear message from this story is that you are free to steal £150k taxpayers' money and get nothing more than a wrist slap if you're caught (which is unlikely).

Well, in the absence of clear case law (ratio) on the point you cannot say HP is obviously wrong, regardless of what HMRC may think.

Why don't you cite some clear case law to support that point? If someone is working as per my above examples (which are not uncommon), then I would expect some clear case law on the point to confirm you're right (I believe the contrary has been stated here before, but I'm too busy today to check).
