  • Typically young means only a few years of experience / 1-2yrs post uni, so still fairly inexperienced and thus not having huge requirements re salary. If you go with someone in their 40s, you'd assume they have 15yrs+ experience and would most likely want £100k+. I'm guessing a startup won't have a...

    They announced the mini budget (then went into hiding for a week) and every economist said it was the stupidest idea ever considering the current geo-political situation. BoE had to bail them out which will wreck the economy further down, but sure look at how great they are with their u-turn (also managed...

    Interesting, suddenly there's a risk of people loosing homes and Tories are not that popular. I guess as long as sh*t doesn't affect the average Tory voter then all is good....

    I personally can't believe they managed to feck it all up this badly with one statement. I mean they have what like 50 financial / economic advisers in the government, so surely they were all against this "mini" feck up. How could you be so stupid to then go ahead anyway and crash the market,...

    Has any of the above got anything to do that GBP is sliding down a slippery slop against the USD?

    Even if you are right I doubt HMRC would just agree and give you a rebate, they will most likely fight you and claim you were inside (they always do that). This is both stressful and time consuming and there's no guarantee you'll win, so it's purely a matter of risk taking and having the will to fight....

    Why would they help? they hardly ever did pre 2017, they will just care as little as before. And look at the amount of permietractors who "walked" when the new rules got introduced...yeah, most just went inside and carried on regardless, now they will be more happy as they will earn more being...

    You'll go from your client doing the determination and you paying if they get it wrong as there's an entry in your contract that if anything is wrong you are the one responsible, to you yourself doing the determination and paying if you get it wrong

    No it won't but will push demand down even further and force more to save whatever they have left (and people have spare cash, it's not all doom and gloom, just go out shopping on a weekend). They are not going hardcore like some countries which are currently at above 5%, if they sat on their asses...

    Reduced stamp duty is a way to keep property sales going with the interest rates going up, the issue is that interest rates adjusted for affordability is actually going through the roof, ie. people are getting close to the levels where they are slowly not being able to afford repayments. Some say "eh...

    I love it when tories assume that all people who are not working / are working part time are lazy spongers and need to be forced to work.
