Agreed. Naming a fintech after a salad component makes no sense.

Charity care provider MHA has released a statement against HMRC naming and shaming them for a technical breach of legislation in six instances when rent paid was not taken into account in employee net pay to meet NMW.
"As is our duty, we have made good the situation and have systems in place to make sure it does not happen again. However, we fundamentally disagree with HMRC’s approach to accommodation within the legislation and believe that it was not the intention to penalise charities that pay their people well and choose to rent properties.
We robustly challenged their approach and considered it a legal challenge. However, we could not be certain or limit the costs of a legal challenge or that we could guarantee the outcome. We are conscious that as a charity, we need to direct our work for the benefit of the older people we care for and support.
MHA is proud to pay at a minimum the Real Living Wage to its care workers and other staff. Clearly technical breaches such as this need to be addressed, but it’s vital that the Government comes forward with its long-promised reforms for the care sector, including recognising and remunerating the skills of care workers and proposing a much-needed workforce strategy."
