    Accomodation for Rebecca

    In view of the fact that Rebecca has moved from "legally" paying 3% tax a year, to someone who is...ahem... on the wrong the side of the law I thought it might be interesting to review possible alternatives for her...

    Thanks bro!

    The funny thing is that the 8% tax (it's not 3% - yet. Working on it tho' ) scheme is legal (well, still legal as we speak). It's the one I was on last year. But with this retroactivity, I may be chased?! I have nothing to risk (it's all out of the country) but something in me tells me it's grossly unfair! And not just for me, but for other users of the scheme, which was legal when it was used!

        I think you'll find that's irrelevant. If the IR decide you owe them money they will expect you to bring it back in. And charge you interest while they are waiting.

            There are only two options.
            1) Bottle of Jack, hose from the exhaust to the car interior, Joy Division on the radio, wait for sweet oblivion to kiss away the tears.
            2) New life in a cabin in Siberia. Marry Svetlana, hunt rabbits, pray to God for forgiveness each night.

              Gromit, it is relevant. I can fly off and the IR cannot touch my stuff
              Yes it was the EBT
              Oh well
              New scheme in place now, even better if anything. I am just peeved at that backdating thing. Grossly unfair IMO

                One bullet in the chamber. Let fate decide the rest.

                  Let's face it. Rebecca is the new-zealand version of Ned Kelly.
                  I've seen much of the rest of the world. It is brutal and cruel and dark, Rome is the light.
