    If deliveries were profitable for these restaurants they would do them.

    Or simply cannot be bothered. They many not want the feeling of downgrading their offering and may want you in the restaurant to keep it busier as well as the bar. That said, most Indian* restaurants do takeaway collection if you ask them.


    * actually Bengali cuisine in the main, but it traditionally confused Brits who thought of curries as Indian

    Default Government Petition

    If you want to make your voice heard and maybe convince HMRC that they should reconsider the sledgehammer IR35 approach they're adopting to contractor tax etc, you might want to consider signing the official petition at https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/170118

    I'm not convinced that a petition along the lines of "we'll earn less" is going to get much traction. The simple response from HMG it that there is a reason that we'll earn less - we'll have to pay the right level of taxation, which is what they want.

    It's the wrong argument. I don't like the amount of tax I'm going to pay is not an argument that anyone will discuss.

    Now stop the ir35 changes to avoid it reducing the available workforce would be an argument people could understand.

    I think a better one is to speak to ministers directly and point out that now employment tribunals are using sdc to determine worker / employment rights, do you really want to end up with your expensive specialist contract staff demanding their employment rights as that is what cl1 determines them to be.

    And has anyone looked at the equality act 2010 and thought through the consequences were the above to happen

    But that petition is an embarrassment and undermines our arguments rather than helping anyone.

    Or even "this will not save money, it will cost money" if it comes to discussions about taxation

    In my area and most of the areas I've lived in it's mainly Pakistani cuisine. Though I've had Sri Lankan cuisine as well.

    Anyway now they are looking at Amazon's conditions linky and linky

    Agree with the others - the petition has picked the one point (drop in income) that is not going to gain any sympathy.

    There are very good arguments against the proposal which have been made to anyone who will listen.

    Well jobs are still being advertised Scala Developer - Web Applications - Central London - December-09-2016 (EzYT0) and I'd expect a deluge up until April.

    I think, at this stage, all we can do is, inform other contractors who are unaware of the pending PS situation. We can all put a sentence on Linked-In profiles that says something to the effect of "Absolutely no to public sector contracts. Please don't ask, because a punch in the face often offends". We can inform through blog posts and on a social media. We can definitely link directly to the GOV UK pdf and off-payroll pages as a source reference, just in case some people don't believe us, like journalists are supposed to do. If all of us knowing forum contractors could do this, we would build a momentum that will be something of a protest / movement.
