|Trouble is it would cost more than £132 to have an accountant save you that money in many cases and I'd only go and spend it so another 17.5% of it would go straight back into the government purse anyway...
I do worry about sites and reports which state:
|They believe many taxpayers do not check how much they should be paying and the system works to the advantage of the Inland Revenue. |
Erm, and they've just realised this??
In reality however, although you could save the £132, this would just mean there'd be a £3 billion blackhole in the finances and therefore they'd have to put up taxes to pay for it so your £132 disappears in tax again.
Admittidly it would be nice if they'd actually spend the money properly especially at more local levels.
