Worthless accounts; You Say

ANOTHER day, another day of dissembling and deceit from the government and their officials.

It's asserted - knowingly falsely - that the rise in self-employment reflects government policies success in creating an entrepreneur culture, whereas the truth is that increasingly people who used to be employed directly are employed as contractors thereby side-stepping income tax, national insurance, employment legislation and restrictions on immigration.

Simply the tax and benefit system is not fit for purpose - with governments and the HMRC being equally culpable. It's ironic that the UK has the highest per capita number of accountants and financial staff in the world by far - all producing some of the most worthless accounts - including the government's own.
