    Default Tax doesnt have to be Taxing ...

    __________________________________________________ _______________________________________


    When you have already spent half a million pounds on rent, £300,000 on furniture and £2.3m paying your staff, an extra £8m on unexplained “administrative expenses” might seem to be stretching credulity, but that is what Tony Blair has told Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs, which as a consequence has received a rather smaller cheque from the former Prime Minister than it might have expected.

    He's a crafty one Old Tony - eh ?

    Oh the full article is here http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...m-6287001.html

    This is a cracker - from Tony Blair himself


    The arrangement is eerily similar to those which so angered him when he campaigned for the Labour leadership in 1994. "

    We must tackle abuse of the tax system," Mr Blair said then. "For those who can employ the right accountants, the tax system is a haven of scams, perks, City deals and profits.


    "We should reward people who work hard and do well. We should not make our tax rules a playground for revenue avoiders and tax abusers who pay little or nothing while others pay more than their share."


    A City accountant from one of the "big four" auditing firms, who did not want to be named, said: "It is mystifying why the administrative expenses should be so large. £8m worth of expenses would be very hard to explain – perhaps that's why they remain unexplained.

    The Times they are a changin' Tony
