    Mini umbrella firms costing UK taxpayer millions

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-57021128

    I guess not the kind of umbrellas us contractors are likely to use - but it felt sort of satisfying to read this article anyway. "Government changes the rules and doesn't like the consequences" - they can suck it up too.

    oops.

    Was reading private eye last night and it seems Mr Cameron needs to decide whether he was really employed by Greensill capital as HMRC are circling looking at private jet usage to his holiday home Lets hope the law gets clarified

      Odd, my copies of Private eye have been high lighting that for months. Mainly due to G4S and the like doing just that for the 'Covid' operations. Why does the BBC have to claim the 'discovery'?

        a right wing mag like Private eye discovering it? Only the way because of the unique way the BBC is funded can they discover such injustice.

              Could anyone with greater knowledge of tax loopholes than I please express an opinion on how this loophole could be leveraged or abused with regards to IR35?
