As I have noted before, HMRC is perfectly happy to rig things in order to present itself in the most favourable light eg
Therefore it should come as no surprise top learn that it also rigged the minutes of July's IR35 Forum.HMRC Rigs Staff Surveys - Latest Update https://t.co/tgSYcAJkdI #Solar #fees #Please #Service #Tax #Insurance pic.twitter.com/qICwPHe5gd— Ken Frost (@ken_frost) October 4, 2017
Contractor UK reports that two advisers to contractors have raised serious concerns about July’s IR35 Forum after a member broke cover with ContractorUK to exclusively criticise the meeting’s minutes.
Status expert Kate Cottrell, who attended, was first to reveal that rather than being a straight record of the meeting, the minutes were “just a one-sided view” -- HMRC’s, of how IR35 reforms it made in April have bedded in.
Since publication of her article last Wednesday, similar concerns have now been raised by both the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed -- another IR35 Forum member, and Qdos, a non-member who specialises in IR35 contract reviews.
“The recent minutes do not accurately reflect the frank discussions at the July meeting and I have today expressed my concern about this to HMRC,” the association’s James Collings said on Thursday.
“In the meeting, myself and other stakeholders raised serious concerns about the significant failings of, and damage created by, the rollout of IR35 changes in the public sector.He who writes the minutes controls history!
However, these conversations were not captured in the official minutes, which were published without forum members being informed.”
Tax does have to be taxing.
