    Is it any wonder some folk are taken in by it? Shouldn't website advertising like this be illegal? May be it already is?
    You will need to report them to ASA but only if it is a banner ad. You will have to take a screen shot of it and say the website you saw it on.

    The whole flippin' website is full of the bull***t. It is possibly the worst example I've seen yet of leading people down the garden path and for 15 to 17% in fees! It is about time HMRC got a grip on this and had a whistle blowing website where you could report this kind of stuff. It's easy to understand how gullible and greedy people can be sucked in by this.

    No offence taken, but are you suggesting that some contractors may have a "greedy" streak?
    Just watching what I say

    We now offer Ltd too, so if you need a company that you can switch between Ltd & Umbrella, just shout!
