    Time was you bought a weekly self employed stamp down the Post Office, stuck it on a special card and handed the full card in to the DHSS office at the end of each financial year.
    You queued up with claimants and all sorts to hand it in and be issued with your next blank card.
    One year a chap jumped the queue in front of me, DSS chap in the box saw him off and says to him...
    "If that gentleman doesn't pay in then there will be no money for you to draw out."
    Anybody working for themself needs as many breaks as they can get.

    If the self employed stamp gets same benefits as employee then cost to SE should be same (though that ignores the Employers Cont).

    If less benefit then lower cost.

    "nd time you have claimed Tesco do not pay any tax, it is simply untrue. When you post such obvious untruths it undermines anything else you may say.

    "The Guardian claimed that Tesco had developed a complex taxation structure involving offshore bank accounts in the tax haven of the Cayman Islands. Tesco was in the process of selling its UK stores, worth an estimated £6 billion, to Cayman Island based companies set up by Tesco. These companies then lease the stores back to Tesco. At the time, The Guardian claimed that this arrangement would enable Tesco to avoid an estimated £1 billion tax on profits from the property sales, and also to avoid paying any tax on continuing operation of the stores, as the rate of corporation tax in the Cayman Islands is zero."

    The Guardian apologised for its story, acknowledging "These damaging allegations were unfounded and should not have been published."

    The Guardian's parent company, Guardian Media Group, used a similar offshore arrangement to avoid tax during its takeover of Emap.

    Pot, kettle, black, springs to mind.
    Loophole closed in 2008 by the way.

    Given the loophole was closed in 2008, produce your evidence for the statement made by yourself, about the head office in the Caman Isles.

    Then maybe you can explain exactly what it has to do with the thread.

    Provide the direct evidence, you have stated as having, that links Tesco with PAYE and the fact that their head office is where you claimed.
    I'll say you can't, other than third hand newspaper stories.

    Evaisive as ever when asked a simple question. You stated you had it, and were working from it. Now you don't want to prove it.
    No suprise there.
