      A perfect storm.

      Pensions
      Dividends
      BTL
      T&E

      The only thing for the clever business man is to now use their pension to buy their own premises and overpay rent into their own SIPP which in turn reduces their profits and in a few years can take it all out tax free.

      Just saying like ;-)

        "All direct taxes were abolished in 1974; the DPRK thus became the first country in the world to abolish income taxes collected from its citizens."

        "All foreign-invested enterprises are subject to income, property, turnover, and local taxes. In the four special economic zones established by the government, one in 1991 and three in 2002, the tax on profits for most enterprises is set at 14%; for enterprises involving high technology, infrastructure construction, or light industry, the tax rate is 10%. Resident aliens in the DPRK must pay personal income taxes; the rate varies from 4% to a top rate of 20%. "

        Taxation - Korea, Democratic People's Republic of (DPRK) - infrastructure

        Top rate of 20%!!!

        So the philosophical question is this - at what point taxation in this country would make life indistinguishable from DPRK?

          Well they were unlikely to say, "Oh gosh, we thought you'd like the tax - of course we'll revoke it immediately."

          If they want to discourage TMI, then I'd prefer them to reduce Employer's NI rather than corp Tax - but as you pointed out, big businesses don't pay corp tax.

            Yup, and in a subtle way where he actually gave away next to nothing.

              Liebour under Milliband had no policy for small businesses this allowed whoever got into power to do what they wanted as it wouldn't be opposed.

                The response email this morning infuriated me, I could have accepted a reasonable email, but they are deliberately saying that they are targeting self employed and small businesses, they want them to pay same tax as employees, but they are forgetting that we do not have same benefits as employees?

                They do think most of us are working through a ltd for one reason only which is pay less tax, which is not true, firstly most if not all companies/agencies will only accept incorporated contractors, secondly some of us like the life style of a contractor, I like the consulting model, I go there for a contract when its done, I am free to take a few months off if I feel like it, or I can run services for two clients at the same time etc...

                  Well basically the same but CT and income tax will go up a lot.

                    Unserstatement of the decade.

                    I would guess "rich" would be defined as "above twice the average UK earnings" (so about £50K) and personal and business tax rates in the 60 to 70% range.

                    If you want to take home about 20 to 30% of your hard earned, and then pay another 20% on VAT when you spend it on a potato, be my guest.
