In an open four page letter Dave Chaplin, CEO of IR35 consultancy ContractorCalculator, accuses Hammond and HMRC CEO John Thompson of “refusing” to acknowledge the “hundreds of thousands” of grievances raised by users of the Check Employment Status for Tax (CEST) tool.
“You have brazenly disregarded the mounting evidence of CEST’s inadequacies while failing to provide anything credible to substantiate your own claims [that it works]..HMRC have responded by saying that it is accurate.
Your public defence of CEST is akin to climate change denial. The evidence is indisputable and right before your eyes, yet you refuse to acknowledge it.”
Tax does have to be taxing.
