• Hah yeah

    Or that weird tax break where you can (could?) dissolve the company and take everything out at a flat rate of 10%

  • I've talked to a lot of contractors. I do some kind-of mentoring on the financial side of it. But yeah I'm like you in that I don't think it's OK for the government to foot the bill for offsetting the inherent risk and expense that comes with that kind of lifestyle. Even if they only spend the money on bombing people or making their mates richer.

    My general advice is rather than feel like you are getting richer by tax dodging, you should be charging much, much more, because chances are you aren't charging nearly enough.
