Tories renew attack on IR35 loophole
The Shadow paymaster general Richard Ottaway has renewed attacks on the government and the Inland Revenue over IR35.
In a letter to Accountancy Age, Ottaway criticises both paymaster general Dawn Primarolo and Nicola Walters of the Inland Revenue over the tax treatment of same-sex couples under the controversial proposals.
Last month Ottaway claimed the rules designed to prevent wives or other relatives being used in a partnership to get around the crackdown appeared to exempt homosexual partners.
