    Anyone else catch the inference that the self-employed will pay more tax in the future? Was all over in a second but he definitely said it.
    ...my quagmire of greed....my cesspit of laziness and unfairness....all I am doing is sticking two fingers up at nurses, doctors and other hard working employed professionals...

    On average, presumably?

    Banking contractors are not covered but lots of IT freelancers will be inside that level.

    What's not clear is whether they consider a PSC to be self employment or not. Lots of people who are genuinely self employed, tradesmen etc, choose to work through a LTD for various reasons.

    We'll they already deferred the IR35 thing. Maybe we're heading for simpler "tax on what you earn" major reform

    Are you a limited company?

    If so this doesn't apply to you anyway as you aren;t "self-employed" in the defintion here.

    You are a PAYE employee with dividend income - so you come under the other scheme - but of course as a director you can't furlough yourself

    Are you certain this has been clarified? The terminology is used in various ways

    Very strong hint of tax/NI reform coming in the future.

    Clearly sowing seeds to use this as an excuse to screw the self-employed with tax-rises in the coming years...not just "PSCs" but sole traders too from the sounds of it.

    What exactly is the "big inconsistency" between a sole trader and somebody on PAYE? Lack of employer's NIC? The ability to offset genuine expenses against tax?
