    Stupidity isn’t much of an excuse either as most are/were reasonably well paid individuals so have a basic level of intelligence (albeit not a lot of wisdom).

    So no sympathy here. I get infractions when I state my view on that other forum.
    Wonder why ? Well, there seem to be thousands of us out there. Thanks for the sanctimonious howl of disapproval. Always welcome.

    It seemed to work for the chairman of the FCA. And alot of scheme users are doctors, work for the BBC, oil&gas, etcetc.

    Do you like HMRC?

    I agree. Maybe ignorance is the wrong word.

    Blindly creating poor petitions when there is zero chance it's going to go anywhere doesn't help anyone IMO.

    People sign anything these days. Attach a reasonable story to it and off you pop. Specially if there is a little bit of cash behind it to raise awareness.

    IR35 is relatively complicated in its meaning. This is relatively simple to understand therefore can attract more interest.

    My post was to warn you to expect even downright hostility in this part of the forum. As you've now experienced.

    I neither love nor loathe HMRC. I am pretty neutral towards them.
    So what if a lot of people use these schemes. They knowingly take a risk and will have to accept the consequences.

    Fair comment NAT - I consider myself warned. It's a shame some people feel such a judgmental compulsion to condemn those who might have made mistakes or accepted (poor) advice. Not much forgiveness on here from those who have all obviously made such perfect life choices. Hey ho.

    And all that rubbish is why no one wants a Petitions monkey on their team. Completely missed the whole point of what you are trying to achieve... but managed to create a petition. You, sir, are a winner.

    Aw, thanks for that. And we all know the law is an ass. And not just in this case. And of course, they never get it wrong.
