I’m getting a bit fed up with the constant adverse attitude towards those of us who choose to run our own business.
Over the last few years we’ve seen things get worse for us, examples are
- Dividend Tax
- IR35 for public sector
- Loss of higher rate tax relief for mortgage interest on residential lettings
- Additional stamp duty for buy to let property
- Accelerated HMRC collection powers
- 2019 Loan Charge
And there’s more in the pipeline
- IR35 for private sector
- Making tax digital
So I’ve had enough and decided that as an accountant that looks after his clients I’m going the self appoint myself as an ‘Owner Managed Business Champion’.
What do I mean? Well, on top of helping my clients to do their best I’m going to try and stop and possibly reverse the Governments attack on the owner-managed business, who I believe are the power behind this country. I’ll be setting up petitions, promoting other petitions, tweeting, posting, creating collateral for others to use, and lobbying whoever I can.
