  1. I must admit i have not looked at the details but I assume she has a "Company" that charge for her services and then pays her a wage which she pays "Income tax" on? If that is the case surely the HMRC should be also getting VAT payments for the services, Employer national insurance contributions and corporation tax on the "profits" on top of her income tax and NI contributions as an employee?

  3. They probably agreed the way it was going to be put to our Parliament to run down the clock so a magic compromise solution was reached that could be plucked "out of the Blue" in the last couple of days before 29th March. We control who gets our jobs and benefits but goods and people move freely as before and we pay a bit less in. UK ends up out but in and everyone's relieved. (That may be just me being over cynical :~)

  9. HMRC have set procedures for VAT and PAYE collections. Specific dates for declaration and payment, fines when late, and debt recovery when the limits are reached. Remember the payments are on going not "one off bills" i.e another one is due fairly quickly. Agreements are though offered to pay arrears in instalments but only if thought sustainable whilst making the future amounts that will fall due. They just choose to use WUPs instead of bailiffs because it's cheaper, quicker and more effective.

  16. The Speaker does not take part in debate or vote (except to break ties; and even then, the convention is that the speaker casts the tie-breaking vote according to Speaker Denison's rule).
  17. Surely 1 additional bi-lateral vote is enough?

  22. Probably why MPs call there constituency address their second home?
