    From what I'm hearing from scientists, covid could be a bit like the flu virus.

    A vacine for covid may only be 50% effective (like the flu vacine).

    Well, they managed to come up with loan charge legislation to specifically target these DR loans without affecting any other lending.

    Assuming 40% tax, then he'd have received £450k in loans. The scheme provider probably took about a 10% fee, and there would have been a small salary as well as the loans. So, all in all, north of...

    Making it a criminal offence to run schemes would be a better deterrent. The risk of jail time would soon put a stop to the scheme pedlers.

    Unfortunately, retrospection is a necessity because HMRC seem to sit on things for ages. I can't see that changing so they'll probably need to fire up the time machine again in a few years.

    I find it hard to believe that many people genuinely thought that using a scheme was 100% kosher. The vast majority of people must have known that it was a bit iffy, and that HMRC would go after it.

    I could understand HMRC leaning on someone to settle (ie. pay tax on the loans). But I can't understand why they would pressure someone to repay them to the scheme lender.

    If he'd opened a $100,000 non-leveraged short of ETH at $220 then, with ETH now at $395, it would have fallen to around $56,000.

    You claimed you put over $100,000 on that 3x leveraged short at end of June. Ethereum was $220 then.
