Apologies if there is already a thread covering this topic but I couldn't find one. The focus of this thread would be to discuss the relative merits of any support groups which exist, and are available for contractors to join.
My personal objectives would be:
I am aware of Big Group, although I don't yet know what their objectives are or whether their objectives align with my own. Does anyone know any other support groups and what they aim to achieve?
- To achieve a fair settlement with HMRC which reduces the tax bill to the minimum ( without getting involved in dodgy "repayment" schemes )
- The achieve closure of the loans so that we don't have the fear of loans being called in in future ( e.g. getting the loan written off or the possibility of having the right to receive payments transferred to the contractor
- Given that the schemes were legal at the time we joined and given that they have utterly failed to fulfil any of their promises, the possibility of taking legal action to obtain a full or partial refund of the fees
