From the TV news on the Budget a summary, the more you earn the better off you'll be. No change there then!

Not for those Limited Company contractors it's not! IR35 is going to knock a huge slice off their take home pay. I think the point about trying to harness the Contractors into a PAYE scheme is okay in principal when you think most people are paying PAYE and have no choice in the matter to pay their tax that way, but apart from Zero hour contracts, these individuals who are working through their own Ltd Co's have absolutely no benefits or security and can be fired from clients without notice or compensation so they do not have the protections but offer a vast amount of flexibility to companies that require outside assistance running their businesses.

 

Hammond hit the wrong people and whilst I accept there are abusers of the IR35 system, as there are in any area of our democracy, the majority offer a flexible workforce which for the UK is the envy of the world.

 

I ran a financial recruitment agency and had hundreds of 'temps' out working, some Ltd co, others on our Payroll and in the 80's Europe and the Labour Party and Unions did everything they could to introduce legislation to cripple the temp market here as they did not enjoy that flexible workforce themselves.

 

There were many rights and wrongs about the rights of workers or the lack of them, but having a flexible workforce that could be deployed at very short notice to tackle big issues in companies was a phenominal asset this Country had.

 

It's not so attractive now because that legislation dampened the appeal of being 'flexible' and companies have been poorer for it.

 

My thought for the day on that little subject of the budget!

 

Have a good one.

Complex subject A1 I could say employers and employees both have their grievances and again no change there then. I think the John Lewis ethos has a lot to teach us.

 

I will be investing in a dash cam as what i'm experiencing on the roads is frightening. Someone saw me driving down a hill so I had right of way, this person stayed in their position and as soon as I came to pass their exit from a building car park on my right, pulled across the road from my right into my driving path in such a way I had to pull towards a bush on my left and let them go. It was intimidating and bullish.

I think there are people driving who have never passed a UK driving test or any driving test. Banned drivers driving. People driving on medication which they shouldn't be, those taking recreational drugs and those who's drinking habits cause them to be permanently drunk.

It's like Mad Max out there! Grrrrrrrrr

There were some 8,500,000 of these minted so they are not rare as only scores 1 on the Scarcity Index. So not worth much more than £2 unfortunately. On the other hand some more nefarious folks have sold them at highly inflated prices in the past have a look https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_odkw=%C2%A32+coin&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR6.TRC1.A0.H0.X%C2%A32+coin+slavery.TRS0&_nkw=%C2%A32+coin+slavery&_sacat=0

Was there life on Mars?:-D

 

Interesting question. My take on this....

 

When I was about 10 or 12 years old (just a few years back!) I was walking along a High Street with my mum. We weren't rich, but we got by okay, I always had clothes and she fed us relatively well. We lived in a nice house.

 

Out of the blue, a homeless looking chap with bedraggled hair, filthy clothes and skin lept over the barrier onto the road and peeled off the tarmac a piece of a chocolate bar which a car must have run over which certainly looked to me like there was life on it from the road and popped it into his mouth to eat it.

 

That memory stays with me.

 

Was there life on Mars? He didn't care, but maybe this probe into the abyss of space will actually find there is/was/could be elsewhere. And as the Beach Boys sang " wouldn't it be nice?" (So long as we humans don't screw that up too!)

    • well what they send before was well below the required stuff. defence is not due till/by 4pm may 3rd.   so incomplete / failure of previous CCA request simply needs to be added to our std holding /no paperwork defence re the way to search here detailed in post 33.   something like   Particulars of Claim  (1)The Defendant entered into a consumer crediticon Act 1974 regulated agreement with Vanquis under account reference xxxxxxxxxx  (2)The Defendant failed to maintain the required payments and a default notice was served and not complied with.  (3) The Agreement was later assigned to the Claimant on 30/09/2014 and notice was given to the Defendant.  (4)Despite repeated requests for payment, the sum of £1,597.56 remains due and outstanding.  And the Claimant claims   (a)The said sum of £1,597.56   (b) interest pursuant to s69 County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% per annum   from the date of assignment to the date of issue,accruing at a daily rate of £0.350,  but limited to one year,being £127.80 (costs) then signed by Lowell Solicitors Limited.  #####Defence###### The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature.  The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.    2. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have in the past had an agreement with [insert original creditor]  but do not recognise this specific account number or recollect any outstanding debt and have therefore requested clarification by way of a CPR 31.14 and section 78 request..    3. Paragraph 2 is denied I have not been served with a Default Notice pursuant to the consumer credit Act 1974.    4. Paragraph 3 is denied. I am unaware of any legal assignment or Notice of Assignment pursuant to the Law and Property Act 1925 Section 136(1)    5. On receipt of the claim form, the Defendant sent a request by way of a section 78 pursuant to the Consumer Credit Act 1974, for a copy of the agreement, the Claimant has yet to comply and remains in default of said request.  The claimant has since complied and disclosed various documents however unable to comply with disclosing a valid full copy of the executed agreement on which their claim relies upon.    6. A further request made via CPR 31.14 to the claimants solicitor, requesting disclosure of documents on which the Claimant is basing their claim. The claimant has not complied, but has stated a general extension of time to retrieve the documents, to date nothing has been received.    7. It is therefore not accepted with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant and the Claimant is put to strict proof to:  a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement and;  b) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for and;  c) show the nature of the breach and evidence by way of a Default Notice pursuant to sec 88 CCA1974  d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim    8. As per Civil Procedure 16.5 it is expected that the claimants prove the allegation that the money is owed    9. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of section 136 of the Law of Property Act and section 82A of the Consumer Credit Act 1974    10. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.    
    • I can’t help but think that we’re massively over complicating things here, pick up the phone and ask to speak with the PM. Explain the issue and ask them to sort it out. I could solve 99.999999% of problems within an hour or so provided someone actually told me what the problem was. By the time I was receiving letters spanning several pages and having to dig through notes and speak to people to get their accounts of what happened it could take weeks to gather the info and get replies from everyone. Just pick up the phone at lunchtime on Tuesday, ask for the PM and if they’re unavailable ask when they can be contacted and speak to them so they have an opportunity to resolve what is probably a very simple issue rather than trawling out weeks of waiting. 
    • it would not take much for the present owner of the CO to get that changed to their name. as far as I am aware, if the property is sold, then it will need paying.   whos the owner now or more correctly, whose been sending letters and what do they say? bet DLC is in the mix...
    • This was the result of a CCJ   The house is jointly owned, but the loan was in both names (at the insistence of Black Horse).   The house is also a shared ownership property, so we own half of it and a housing association owns the other half.
  • Our picks

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
