    Also, your MP responding means little or nothing. David Gauke (in this government) responding is the target (and yes, I have a couple of letters from the Minister in recent years on various tax-related matters)
    My MP replied within 3 days to an email sent through writetothem.com and was extremely supportive

    Get your facts straight before spouting your usual negative diatribe.

    There's a difference between "supportive" and "doing something about it". All MPs are supportive, it's how they get re-elected. Ministers pull strings and make things happen, or their answers give you the ammunition you need to challenge their approach. I don't confuse motion with progress.

    Get your facts straight before spouting your usual negative diatribe.
    It's not me that's negative. I've been campaigning for fair treatment of contractors for around 12 years. If you don't want to understand what's effective and what isn't , that's your decision.
    Blog? What blog...?

    Then I suggest you do NOT write to YOUR MP.

    You have obviously been campaigning for too long. Do something else with your life, you are no use to anybody here

    This "debate" is not adding any value to anything. I suggest you leave it alone.

    I can assure you that I will not be acting on any of your suggestions. You comment as though you are an expert but you have just shown yourself to have little knowledge as you 'poor cold water' on anything remotely positive. I suspect this soothes your ego.

    Default Template letter for responding to HMRC consultation

    NTRT have prepared a template letter for people to respond to the consultation. Please alter it in your own words.

    Some people will say it won't count if everyone sends similar letters but HMRC will have to report to the Minister how many responses they got. So every letter does count.

    Default For all those NOT affected please help

    It's hard to know if the majority of people who are reading this thread are affected or not, regardless of if you are or are not affected your support in this matter is urgently needed.

    What is being proposed in the consultancy document gives HMRC powers that allow them to judge people "guilty until proven innocent" and force money to be paid without any court hearing. Could you imagine if you suddenly got a bill for more money than you could possibly afford, that you would be forced to sell your family home or go bankrupt? If you have children can you imagine how this will affect them, when they have done nothing wrong?

    If you can empathise, please please take just 5 mins to help us, we need as many people to object to what is being proposed as possible - the last document only 31 people responded (most of those professional bodies), we need many many more.

    The letter NTRT guys have put together can be used a template (or even just sign it and send it in)

    If you were in the situation some of us were in, would you not want to ask everyone possible to help?

    You're speaking to the converted here. You'd be better off making your plea in http://forums.contractoruk.com/accou...er-trusts.html
