I don't usually bother to take issue with your interpretation of the law (and right now, I'm talking pre-loan charge), but I am curious. Do you believe for one minute that if someone makes a financial gain (whatever name you call it) that is, betting or otherwise explicitely excluded, a permanent gain, they should be exempt from tax on that gain?

I have, though possibly not in the way that he meant.

And kind of deduction at source system for the self-employed would, out of necessity, ignore qualifying expenditure or, in an attempt to mitigate that side effect, would employ an arbitrary rate of deduction that could not possibly apply across the board.
As a consequence, the majority of self-employed would likely overpay and have to spend months fighting HMRC to try to get a refund (assuming that the attendant cash-flow problems it would cause don't send them under first).
Marvelous idea - not.

What, you mean HMRC, for example?

Why is this any worse than .gov.uk publishing out of date, or even just plain wrong information?

It's all well and good diverting the work to other staff to bring down the waiting time, but the work normally done by those other staff will suffer as a consequence.
HMRC's approach of rob Peter to pay Paul when it comes to resources is untenable, and the only real solution is to adequately staff the department. This is something that ministers need to be focusing on.

It's a shame that the roadmap doesn't include HMRC finally fixing their systems.

If HMRC didn't make the sign up process so convoluted, and had a system that actually works they may have had more success, but their bid to rush it all through with ill conceived processes puts them firmly at fault.

As a consumer, this is the first I've heard of this. It's all well and good taking a soft landing with business, but how about making the consumers aware?
