Fair tax treatment for ITC contractors
Lorely Burt, LibDem MP for Solihull and alumna of Swansea University, has tabled an Early Day Motion seeking redress for long-standing unequal treatment by the Revenue of professional contractors. I was lucky enough to escape the iniquitous IR35 when I was contracting regularly, but many colleagues were unnecessarily penalised and continue to be so. It is to be hoped that many MPs will sign the EDM to show the strength of feeling against IR35.
