    Just a comment about Mettle. Perhaps they have improved, but middle of last year I gave up trying to open an account with them. Their security system seemed non-fit for purpose. I kept getting...

    Yes you can. I print mine out from TaxCalc software. I have to print and post it because the electronic submission fails every time for no apparent reason.

    Expect a CT hike in 2022 and 23. A rise in 2021 would snuff out any chance of an economic rebound from Covid before it even starts.

    It's absolutely astonishing to imagine that debt in the IoM can be legitimised in the UK as simply as this? It's hard to believe, but in this saga, there's a stream of endless surprises.

    Very sad. Welcome to the UK. "The world's newest third world country". That message needs to be displayed at every UK airport so arrivals understand exactly where they have arrived.

    Without a doubt you are right. The other approach taken wasn't the "we are HMRC aprroved", it was "no need to declare DOTAS, we're outside that, we aren't a tax avoidance scheme, we're fully HMRC...

    Absolutely, a traditional general manager role can never be outside IR35. You can pretend it is and take the risk, but that's not the same thing as truly being outside, obviously.
