The EU is defunct and past it's sell by date. It only has a political agenda. The immigration and Greece crisis shows what they are not capable of.
Have some faith in our own ability to prosper. I dispute your reasoning that economically we would be worse off. Once the shackles are thrown off just watch the enthusiasm of our youth take on the world.
Aren't our youth already taking on the world from within the EU. Digital really knows no borders and that is where most of our youth are playing. Unfortunately for me Brexit campaigners can't provide any certainty.
The choices in this referendum are dire, vote remain and you're voting for something that is broken and you are hoping it can be fixed, vote leave and you are basically betting on red, when black or green are more likely to come up and not voting is just sticking your head in the sand.
So far Brexit have spent all of the money we won't send to the EU on the NHS, what about Research and Development which is hugely funded by the money coming back from the EU, what about Regional Development that is heavily funded by EU Money. Yes it's a lot of money that we pay to them and we don't see it all come back, but that is more than made up for in trade.
If you think that we can subsidise our Steel or other selected industries more by being outside of the EU, don't be surprised if they slap huge tariffs on the outputs from those industries when supported companies try and trade with the EU, because we would have made them more competitive and the EU would level the playing field.
I would rather be broke and alive than be 'rich'and dead when all the Muslim terrorists stream in from the other EU nations and we all live under Sharia Law or be killed

The moral of this story is - use the right chuffing form!
Or ask a tax specialist with experience in dealing with the various venture capital schemes to check the compliance statement before it is submitted to HMRC.
And tax specialists make no human errors. They probably have PI cover, though

Not be claimable? Speak with Jon Cleary or Hugh Laurie. How does one define British Music? Do we stick with Elgar? Do we do a demo disc send to our local inspector and ask for a ruling? Can't these A***holes see that music is a global phenomenon! Only a cretin will attempt to localise it.

I like to use the SA login,to file my clients tax returns it works for me, and I am a fully qualified Accountant FCCA, and a rogue apparently.
Why do you 'like' to use the Client's login? What is the attraction ?

They got the job done, a huge number of mispostings, a lot of confusion, luckily we had an admin person here twiddling their thumbs so they scanned everything in before sending it over there otherwise that would have been additional cost. Overall it was apparent that the quality was very poor but if you've got a lot of data entry to do and don't mind spending a lot of time correcting mispostings afterwards then on balance it may be commercially worth it. Personally I would never to do it, quality of work and personal knowledge of the clients business is paramount to my client
@ qhas - i'm happy for other greedy monkey practices to service their greedy monkey clients, it leaves the better/nicer clients for us to deal with.
I reduced my fee accordingly. That's how the fee was halved . You might have cared to read my submission carefully before you have a pop at me being greedy. You must not make yourself look so silly on a forum like this. It's not very clever, you know .

Any chance of prevailing upon BT? And while you are at it can they switch their payroll operation to the UK?

Basic inputting tasks may be OK to outsource and supervise from the UK. Any thing more involved and you run the risk of disappointing your clients
I gave clients the choice. Service your account overseas and halve the cost or stick with the UK staff. They bit my hand off. They couldn't care less if it were camels or coolies. No moral dimension figured in the decision. Don't delude yourselves, guys. Those days are all gone. We are just as greedy monkeys as any other nation . Look no further than our lawmakers. We may like to proclaim we are, though. Hypocrites we all are.

In my credit control days, I used to detest ringing Tescos accounts payable - the phone line was terrible, I could hardly understand the staff and when there was an issue (which there often was) it was a nightmare to resolve. I can to this day quote word for word, in the same (probably bad when I try it) accent, the recorded message..... 'you are tru to tesco accounts paaayable, if yor call is for.......'
So for me, the communication difficulties put me off. I generally hate having to speak to overseas call centres for anything, EE are my current dislike, so why deliberately inflict it by outsourcing there. Not for me. Then again, I struggle understanding Scottish friends when they're talking, so maybe its just me!
You are right. It's just you
