 I meant exactly what I said. Feel free to keep banging your own drum. 

 

What benefits did you gain (and then lose through IR35) by operating a Ltd company? You seem to have a hardon over my tax status.

No Mark I don’t bud but you preach the labour socialist worker sermon and have plenty to say on the subject yet a while  back boasted how your accountant gets you down to virtually paying nothing !!. IR 35 should not concern you surely !!.  I and 47 others who had to go through either an agency or an umbrella company ( common practice offshore ) ran like this for 5 years during that period we were assured multiple times verbally and via e mail etc that we were IR35 compliant and  sched D offshore tax status was irrelevant,  that we had no rights to be employees and therefore not entitled to holiday pay,pensions, sick pay or paternity leave etc. Once again all of the above is and has been common practice for years in many industries. Out of nowhere we were told nope you all should have been on the books regardless of the ad hoc nature of the job or the fact we had no say in the way we were paid. It was a take it or leave it deal, work through agency or not at all. Briefly the battle over the past 3 years has been to prove we had no choice and financial gains were made by the agency and the company. That has been acknowledged by hmrc but at the end of the day they still want the difference between how we were paid as contractors and how they see it as we should have been paid ie employees even though we have received zero benefits as such. It would take me all night to log it all down but in a nutshell they have had every penny I’ve made offshore for the past 2 years whilst trying to catch up and pay tax on the earnings I’m using to pay off what they say is due. I’ve lived off savings and income from other work, milling etc through my ltd company. Last trip I did was 8 weeks on 6-6 nights bud plus an hr either side for hand overs so basically 14hr days 7 days a week and every penny was passed to revenue, so forgive me if I don’t buy into the labour good Tory bad socialist shite. Don’t forget bud where I’m from eh, starting off in lynemouth post miners strike is not being born with a silver spoon in your mouth.

Only  because you claim to be a good little socialist and seem to support the parties that would increase tax for the average working man yet then mouth off with glee that you're a dirty little tax dodger. That in my opinion is the lowest of the low.

Mark constantly beats the Tory bad labour good left wing socialist worker shite but likes to keep his tax bills down like everyone else in reality. That’s the jist of the labour socialist comment Eggs 🤷‍♂️ 
They are all the same  as far as I’m concerned, everyone of them has tried to outdo each other with covid restrictions shite and spending promises that have yet to be paid for. Tory, Labour or Liberal they all line their pockets once done, The family Blair probs the most successful at it in recent times I’d say.

Never mind yung Euan worth was it £160,000,000.00 courtsey of his start-up which proportedly matches candidates with apprenticships.

After his ould Da put measures in place to get 50% into Uni, the Son makes a bloody fortune reversing the process(no doubt by tapping into some bloody Government grant scheme)

I heard about this the other day:

 


General Sir Gordon Messenger, former vice chief of the defence staff, will lead a probe into health and social care in a bid...

 

 

Talk about a poison chalice. 
 

What with a boot neck sorting out the NHS, RLC driving fuel tankers, any military with C1 licence driving ambulances in Scotland and Wales, flood relief, firefighting through strikes - hell the military even had to rescue the Olympics!

 

Might as well go full military coup and sort the whole country out.

It sounds like you would benefit from a union to help negotiate things on your behalf. {insert thumb up emoji}
I've lost a 60K gig due to IR35.
I hope things work out for you mate.
