    I was going to get my violin out but, having read some of those comments, I'm almost sympathetic.

    For those that don't know. CS rating are AA->AO->EO->HEO->SEO then into the numbers.
    So an AO is equivalent to a junior programmer with a couple of years real experience.
    Don't know how that compares with the AO complaining about his take home pay (£1200/month) and wanting a 20% increase, oddly saving his ire for the PAYE and NI they pay.

    Any Maths not HMRC strong point either.

    Loan charge under review: The 20-year retroactive tax policy pushing IT contractors to the brink

    HMRC, meanwhile, maintains that the average settlement size it is seeking from contractors caught by the loan charge policy is about £13,000.

    “HMRC claims there are 50,000 contractors affected and the average figure owed is £13,000,” said Phil Manley, a director at tax consultancy PMTC, and active member of the anti-loan charge campaign community. “If you multiply one by the other, how did HMRC get the £3.2bn they expect to make from the loan charge?

    “I've been speaking to numerous tax firms, effectively rival firms, as we’ve all had to come together on this. And the average [tax bill] we’re seeing is £135,000. So unless they missed a zero, I’m not sure where HMRC has got that figure from.”

    Computer Weekly raised this point with HMRC, which declined to address the question in the response it provided.



    Maybe they got Diane Abbott to do the maths?
