    Indeed they don't but some people seem to see creative accounting as ok but the odd tax dodge as wrong. Reality is the whole system is screwed and the rich can afford the creative accounting which means they pay practically no tax.

      There is but I suggest we have spent more time discussing this than the equivalent we could have invoiced our clients for the extra work! If I was on 20,000 a year then every penny helps, luckily I'm a contractor and shouldn't be counting pennies.

        So don't moan about paying tax, then.

          Tax isn't pennies.... It's in the 1000s.

          Reducing 1000s by pennies isn't worth it. Reducing 1000s by 100s or 1000s by 1000s is.

            I refer the honourable gentleman to the reply I gave some monents ago:

            Reducing your tax bill is ALWAYS worth it, if you can do so via legitimate means. If you want to pay more tax, then great - you do that. However, by doing so you somewhat reduce the credibility of any subsequent "I pay too much tax" argument.

                Well, that's a blinkered attitude.

                The reality of our types of business is that we don't have lots of high value expenses, the vast majority are small, but they add up so those of us with sense capture the reasonable and allowable ones.

                In the last couple of months my expenses have been in 4 figures per month with a high percentage in the sub £20 bracket.

                    I recommend getting it at the Bardoc walk in centre in Bury. Hope that helps.

                    Where ever you go give me a shout and I'll come and give you a lift there as well so as not to inconvenience you

                      When saving money, I like to think whether the saving is now, accrued over time or a saving to the business - if you saw the money on the street, would you pick it up? If yes, then take the saving. £3 now is the same as £3 in a year or £3 to your ltd.
