    Waitrose? Is that the not quite Booths store people down South use because they haven't discovered Booths or don't have one near them?

    Are you doing your own accounts and corporation tax return?

    If so stop and find an accountant because you don't have enough knowledge to do it correctly as you don't even know what you don't know.

    Even if it doesn't get passed down and was paid by the engager (hard to see how that works in reality) it would still just be a cut in the budget available to the contractor while making a...
