Deliveroo claims victory in self-employment

stinks of yet another bent judge coming to the

to as the gig economy. Or, more fake employment/self-employed/start-up/entrepreneur

The present Tory regime had already reduced
the country's border operations to near-chaos
well before the rigged Brexit vote came along.
As for 'massive queues and lorries full of rotting
food' that sounds just like another strike by
French trade union criminals. Still further
chaos tolerated by the Tories instead of taking

voters and businesses.

could add £75k to self-employed pension
Extending auto-enrolment to the self-employed
could add up to £75,000 to each persons
pension pot, the Pensions Policy Institute (PPI)
has calculated. This would result in a retirement
income of £13,500 per year when combined
with the state pension. PPI's 'Restless Worklife'
study, commissioned by insurance provider Zurich,
also revealed a growing gap in workplace benefits
between gig workers and the rest of the workforce,
with 53% of gig workers receiving no benefits
from their employer. Gig workers are freelancers
who work on temporary and short-term projects
or engagements. (EnterpriseQuest)
proposes simpler VAT system. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/otss-first-review-of-vat-triggers-debate
The Office of Tax Simplification (OTS) has published
a new report suggesting ways to simplify VAT.
In the report, the OTS makes eight core recommendations
for the Government to make the VAT system simpler,
fairer and more flexible. Recommendations include
reforming the current approach to the level
and design of the VAT registration threshold,
reducing the impact of penalties on a business
that voluntarily discloses VAT inaccuracies,
and exploring how VAT record-keeping could be
handled online. (EnterpriseQuest)
HMRC reviewing Making Tax Digital. https://www.accountancylive.com/hmrc-reviewing-priorities-making-tax-digital-programme
HMRC has confirmed that it is likely to delay
work on some of the 250 projects that make up
its digital transformation programme, due to
the additional workload and uncertainty caused
by Brexit. HMRC is currently in talks with the
Government to agree which elements of the programme
should be delayed or deferred, which could mean
changes to the introduction of Making Tax Digital.
The chief executive of HMRC, Jon Thompson, said:
"It's not credible to continue with the
transformation programme as it is and deliver
all 250 projects at one time, not with the additional
workload of 40% to 50% because of Brexit and
responding to fiscal changes in the Budget."

Credit will discourage self-employment.
The Low Incomes Tax Reform Group ( ) has warned
that Universal Credit will discourage people
from becoming or continuing to be self-employed.
The current Universal Credit system assumes
self-employed claimants earn a regular income
equal to at least the National Minimum Wage.
In addition, no provisions are made for claimants
with income and expenditure that fluctuates
from month to month. As a result, the LITRG
has called for the Government to allow self-employed
claimants to average their income over a year,
and for the 'minimum income floor' not to apply
for the first two years after a self-employed
person starts trading. (EnterpriseQuest)
Abolition of Class 2 NICs delayed by 12 months.
HM Treasury has announced that the abolition
of Class 2 National Insurance contributions
(NICs) will take effect in April 2019 rather
than April 2018. The delay is to enable HM Treasury
to consult on the impact that abolishing Class
2 NICs will have on the low-earning self-employed.
Once Class 2 NICs have been abolished, self-employed
people with annual profits below the small profits
threshold will have to pay Class 3 NICs in order
to build up an entitlement to state benefits.
Class 3 NICs are five times the amount of Class
2 NICs for 2017/18 (£14.25 per week compared
to £2.85 per week). (EnterpriseQuest)

in 'rules of business' for small retailers and
A survey of 222 small and medium-sized retailers
and wholesalers by Menzies LLP has identified
the trading risks they expect to face in 2018.
The top four risks identified were cash-flow
difficulties, supply problems, a lack of resources
and the effect of uncertainty on trading activity.
The research also found that many small and
medium-sized retailers and wholesalers indicated
that they lack support and feel isolated, and
that they may require better signposting to
business support services. (EnterpriseQuest)

in crisis: could French bakers crumble amid
butter shortage? https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/25/croissants-in-crisis-could-french-bakers-crumble-amid-butter-shortage
Never mind Brexit - THIS is really serious.
And if the French didn't live in the past, they
would have seen this crisis coming years ago.
The trouble is, if they can't produce better
negotiators than M. Barmier, then they are truly
in the merde.

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) has called
for business rates to be frozen, rather than
increased by September's retail price inflation
(RPI) figure at the beginning of next April.
The RPI for September 2017 was 3.9%. According
to the BRC, if this figure is used to calculate
the increase to business rates in April 2018,
retailers will pay an extra £250 million.
The RPI is calculated each month by the Office
for National Statistics. (EnterpriseQuest)

about fake HMRC e-mails. https://www.accountancylive.com/warning-fake-hmrc-vat-email-scam
A VAT e-mail scam involving fake HMRC e-mails
has been revealed by security specialist Trustwave.
According to Trustwave, in September 2017 scammers
sent out e-mails with the header 'VAT return
query' and a reference to the fake website 'www.hmirc-gov.co.uk'.
If someone clicked on an image embedded in the
e-mail, they were redirected to a Microsoft
OneDrive file-sharing service, where malware
was automatically downloaded to their computer.
HMRC has updated its guidance covering distinguishing
genuine HMRC e-mails from scam phishing e-mails.
