Scroll down for: A Home and Small Business Viewpoint by Len Tondel, from 1st April 2017

By way of explanation. The term 'home business' consists of two words. 'Business' is the second one; it's there to qualify and support the word 'home' and all that goes with it - and not vice versa. Consequently, we also list below, items which are of interest and value to the home. Whether in its context as an office or as a part of your family and lifestyle but always directed at the improved prospects and enjoyment that running a business from home, in its entirety, can bring.

For a current, multi-part overview of starting and running a business from home, go here: http://www.homebusiness.org.uk/features.htm

30.04.2017: MPs say 'dominance' of big home-building firms must end. http://www.bbc.com/news/business-39752869 This must be a rather unique collection of MPs who haven't profited from the building industry's never-ending supply of cash suppositories to the country's political parties!

Which is only befitting for a bunch of arseholes.

White House: Trade deal with UK low priority after Brexit. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/white-house-trade-deal-uk-low-priority-brexit-a7706681.html As Little Ingerlandt's public school fags (and war criminals) have already given away the country's silver to the Americans, it's hardly surprising the Yanks don't see any further prospects for their little colony across the pond.

Head of Taylor Review seeks legal definition of self-employment. http://www.freelanceuk.com/news/5172.shtml The head of the Taylor Review of modern employment practices has told the Financial Times that he wants the principles distinguishing 'self-employment' status from 'worker' status to be defined in primary legislation. The Government appointed Matthew Taylor, the Chief Executive of the Royal Society of the Arts, to lead the review in October 2016. Mr Taylor also indicated that he favours transferring the legal burden of proof regarding a worker's employment status from the individual to the organisation that hires them.

Heavier fines for online traders failing to pay tax. http://economia.icaew.com/en/news/april-2017/hmrc-hits-online-traders-with-heavy-fines-for-unpaid-taxes HMRC are increasing the fines given to online traders that fail to pay the correct amount of tax, according to accountancy firm Moore Stephens.

This compares to a more usual fine of between 35% and 50% of tax owed. (EnterpriseQuest)

UK in skills crisis as young workers struggle with reading and maths. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/04/18/uk-skills-crisis-young-workers-struggle-reading-maths/ Errr. Nothing new here. The UK has been suffering a 'skills crisis' for more than fifty years. And as long as forty years ago, academics were already writing training programmes for the country's yoof to include basic reading, writing and life and social skills. So what have intervening regimes of war criminals from then until now given their country instead? Dummyphones. American online social media utilising a 50-word vocabulary including 'Oh, my God', 'cool', 'awesome' and 'amazing'. 'Reality' TV totally removed from the daily events of anyone with a life. The practice of taking selfies. And a national addiction to foreign takeaways and getting bladdered every night.

The money can be earned from self-employment, casual services (such as gardening) or the hire of personal equipment (such as power tools). Anyone who is newly self-employed and expects their annual gross income to be less than £1,000 will not have to register for tax self-assessment, although they can do so voluntarily, while anyone with self-employment income over £1,000 must register for self-assessment.

Londoners work 'three weeks a year more than rest of UK'. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-39516134 That's because London is such a filthy, polluted, stressed-out shithole that Londoners need three weeks a year longer than people living elsewhere in the world just to come to terms with daily life, much less do an equivalent amount of work.

Jeremy Corbyn calls late payment culture at big companies a 'national scandal'. http://www.aol.co.uk/news/2017/04/10/jeremy-corbyn-calls-late-payment-culture-at-big-companies-a-nat/ It's been a national scandal since Margaret Thatcher's regime began rewarding industry leaders deliberately ruining tens of thousands of small suppliers, with knighthoods. As not widely or regularly reported by the country's fake news, state propaganda, of course. Consequently, rather than making historically worthless promises, Mr Corbyn should persevere with clearing the traitors and war criminals out of his party and put them all on rendition flights to the Middle East where they can hopefully disappear for the benefit of mankind, a greater Britain and the widespread benefit of the small business community. And the fact that the country's hate-preaching, state propaganda is spitting its bile at Mr Corbyn every five minutes is proof enough that he is on exactly the right path!

Each company was required to provide the committee with their standard contract for workers as part of its inquiry into self-employment and the gig economy. Having studied the contract terms, Committee Chair Frank Fields described the contracts as "gibberish" and "unintelligible". Mr Fields also said: "These companies parade the 'flexibility' their model offers to drivers but it seems the only real flexibility is enjoyed by the companies themselves. It does seem a marvellous business model if you can get away with it." (EnterpriseQuest)

London is identified as being at risk due to its large European workforce. The manufacturing, energy and agriculture sectors are expected to be worst hit by a hard Brexit due to their reliance on EU workers, high levels of EU exports and the likelihood of higher tariffs on their products.
