    I cannot believe the brass neck of some of the comments on that petition.

    "Unfortunately 80% of the salary I pay myself isn't sufficient to survive. The dividends I pay myself are within the laws of the government so I don't know why they are not taken into account? I feel I am being penalised for acting within letter of the law."

    As I've said before when commenting on this "petition" it's going to do more harm then good.

    Your salary is what you should be taking to live on and pay your bills, dividends are there as a reward for the success you got from the risk you took...

    Being in business means preparing for the bad times. You can’t have your profits taxed like a business and your losses socialised like a pseudo-employee.
    Businesses are getting lots of support, generally.

    Mostly to retain employees, certainly not to maintain dividends, and rightly so.
