MarkHS2, Green Taxes and employers' NI contributions are my favourites. If I could only make one point, it would be employers' NI. I could employ two more staff and would tomorrow, if I didn't have the extra, unfair tax burden of NI.
Mark Pickford;@ Ian. Business rates are outrageous. I was talking to my local car wash guy the other day in town. Over £8 said:We rent warehouse and premises in Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames - total 15000sq feet
Rates are £92300 for the coming year
I looked into moving and found the same sized premises in Sunbury under Spelthorne Council Rates there and cost = £38000
So 8 miles apart and a £54k difference does not make sense
But it does to the valuation office and Local councils!
