    Good for you @Tim-Time 1888
    Let's be honest i'd say the overall majority of self employed don't declare their income. And by that i mean the guy who goes about cutting grass for cash in hand, or cleaning windows, or fixing and servicing cars, plumbing, joinery etc.
    Surely there should be some kind of system in place where if they are not on PAYE or registered as unemployed they should be getting chased. They can find the resources to chase non payment of council tax, housing benefit overpayments or disability claimants - but they have no desire to get people to pay their fair share. This missing money would i imagine make the bill for any sort of benefits seem miniscule.
    Girl who lives next door her boyfriend is self employed carpenter. Never paid a penny of tax or NI. My brother in law is the same - earns 3 times as much as me yet pays * all back in.
    Makes ye sick.

    I don't deal in cash, so there is no chance I could even if I wanted (I wouldn't anyway). Also as a registered 'adviser' working in the sector I have to sign documents etc stating that if I am aware/suspect someone is illegally avoiding tax I have to report that as a 'suspicion' otherwise, if it came out and they were indeed illegally avoiding tax etc, I would be liable to a fine and or a prison sentence and loss of my license (no not car). I wouldn't agree that the majority don't declare their income, think that's harsh tbf Senna but yes there will be a percentage who do (human nature). One way to help reduce it is if 'we' pay bills by debit card and ask for a 'proper' bill/receipt.

    If you genuinely believe/suspect what you say mate then -

    Remember though "snitches get blah blah" although, funnily enough, when starbucks or Vodafone do it people agree they are * and you never hear the 'snitches get ...' patter then, so go figure :39:
    One thing though, if you do report a suspicion it then becomes an offence to admit reporting someone as you may 'tip them off' and that is also a serious offence :giggle1:

    Fine lads but DONT ever moan about starbucks or Vodafone etc not paying their 'fair' share. *, we can add the orcs to that as well :giggle1:

    Nah, I know * that have got the sack because they've taken a skip home for a wee homer and they've been grassed in as a wee extra earner on the side or a few homers as a beauty therapist after work and got chased cos some absolute * has grassed them in.

    People trying just to earn a wee bit extra to get by. Wee * who go out their way to cause hassle for folk just strugglin to get by - scummy *.

    That's all fine and well but when it's their full time job? Earning more than you ever will and you're paying tax on you're meagre wages while they are living it up.
    There's doing a wee bit for a bit of cash which is fine then there is being a * and abusing the system knowingly.

    AND there's a massive difference between what you're on about and tax dodging.

    As I said mate don't ever moan again about starbucks/Vodafone the orcs or any other company that avoids paying their share.
    Without knowing the full details, but generally, if one of my employees decided to use my equipment so they could earn some extra cash I would probably sack them as well.
    Nah scummy * are rapists and the like.

    It's a 2nd income, Governement treats it the same. I know what you're getting at but it's not the * that get targeted in my experience.

    I'll moan if I want to, I think there's a massive difference between Vodafone and yer mate Davey doing a couple of cash in hand jobs so he can get the weans Christmas presents in.

    And that's your perogitive as an employer, my problem is with the wee nosy * across the road going out their way to get some poor * just trying to make a wee bit extra the sack.

    Anybody who goes out of their way to make other peoples lifes difficult for no reason are scum to me. You're just arguing about the scale after that.

    Exactly, 'wee Davey' across the road or Vodafone etc, the principle is the same, both are avoiding paying their fair share.

    Probably unlucky that he played mostly in the era of 442, he would have been perfect for the 3 in the middle I think.
