Regarding comments about CIS

I think these changes should have happend last year, is it right that we no longer need ID CIS Identification with our own UTR No and PHOTO proving important and relevant information, on which we are. Well if Im right and NO CIS CARD IS NEEDED, NO photo, No evidence of whom I maybe going to give work to.

For what ever reason the government has decided to take away all CIS ID, I think we have gone back years, so if Mr Smith down the road comes to me for work, I will go on the HM Revenue & Customs site to put all details of my new Employee/self-employed person to see what he is. All relevant information will go in. Then the system will do its best to tell me if he’s self-employed or PAYE.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what the system says, because the person whom Im thinking of giving some work to, could be Tony Blair or Mr Mallet, no Photo, No Card, No Nic, No signature, what is the government doing, is there a point or benefits to any of this, please let me know what they are, because Im bewildered.

What do you think?
