HMRC – Statutory Notice

HMRC – Statutory Notice

Hi All,
Oh joy!!! I have just received this notice from HMRC announcing that I have to organise a return detailing all payments made to all clients over the last tax year. That is an enormous amount of work. I know of one other who has received this and presume if you havent go it yet, its on its way. I will be digging further with Equity and reading up on the legislation but can you let me know if any of you are in the same boat?
See below the article regarding Equitys similar notification and fight with HMRC for the same information. As much as I champion their great efforts in protecting the artists, it now simply means they will get all this information anyway by forcing each and every one of us to collate it, time for which will be at our own enormous expense.
