IR35 Petition

Probably of little or no interest to most readers, but there’s now an e-petition calling for the abolition of IR35.

IR35 was a way of gathering extra tax revenues (without raising the basic rate for taxation) by picking on Computer Contractor’s who work in a way that suits the relatively short life-cycles of the industry.

It paints tens of thousands of honest hard working tax payers as tax avoiders, whilst giving no recognition to the risk and extra work that they have to put in to make there living.

Shame that the petition paints contractors as people who don’t know the difference between “their” and “there”.

Oh, and while we’re talking about spelling – d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y.
