If a loan is taken from a bank it must be repaid, if it seems too good to be true then it probably is.
Many of those making a fuss are the people who sold & recommended these schemes, not much wonder they are worried.

This will no doubt be used as an excuse by government to increase class2 contributions to the genuine self employed risk taking entrepreneurs as well as those gaming the system.

While many subcontractors had to set up PSC's they had a choice as to whether to join these schemes. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is.
THe rest of us who have avoided these high risk schemes should not be making up the shortfall in tax.

The fact is that the desire of HMG to force & encourage the low paid to save through pensions is a con trick. People who are barely managing cannot afford to make contributions so why make them? Because it will save HMG money when they retire, any pension income will be taken into account when calculating pension credit or whatever it will be called so it really only HMG that benefits (& the pension company)

My experience was similar in the 80's when subcontracted to London based practice with no local office, charged as manager when merely a senior.
In 90's my biggest multi million £ was sold, , big 4 due diligence , sent by own admission trainees who had little experience or idea.

Nothing like government simplification, massive increase in the amount of time & business costs for those on cash accounting.
Trust HMRC .

I think most of this is pie in the sky, I'm surprised that somebody who works for the big 4 is talking about things that will be adopted by small clients rather than big. My first advice re the FB plugs is at your own peril.
Of course there are the unknown unknowns that nobody can see till they arrive.

The only advantage I can think of is as an occasional visitor to London who doesn't have an Oyster card it can be used on the underground.

Does this give an extra opening to online fraud?

Included is detailed warehouse inventory records, most small businesses do not have these & without them the profit calculation is meaningless.
