Tax. IR35. Confused about the implications? Or just confused about what it is?
Leave it all to us. We′re specialists in both tax and IR35 and can give you impartial, straightforward advice on both. With Tarpon, you′ll have your own personal business manager to keep you tax-efficient and to reclaim up to 100% of your business expenses, tax-free. (Your business manager will even call you at a convenient time to take down the details of those expenses, which means you won′t need to do this online each week.) And to ensure you maximise your tax and national insurance savings we also offer a childcare voucher scheme and a personal pension through salary sacrifice. Enjoy cheaper travel. With Tarpon, you can claim back 100% of your travel expenses when travelling to and from work by public transport. Or, if using your own car, motorbike or bicycle, you can claim 40p, 24p or 20p per mile, respectively. No receipt required. Car rental costs can also be claimed, as can the lowest airline fares. And it's all HM Revenue & Customs-approved. Claim up to £24 a day for food, tax-free, without receipts. Covering your breakfast, lunch and evening meal, that works out at £5,760 a year. If away from home on business, you can claim up to £18 a night for food and drink. Even if you′re staying with friends rather than at a hotel, you′ll get £25 a night for accommodation and food. And it′s all HM Revenue & Customs-approved. If the taxman comes knocking, it won′t be on your door. As far as HM Revenue & Customs are concerned, the buck stops with us, not with our contractors. So, unlike some umbrella companies, we don′t need to provide legal fees to cover possible investigations. We′ll keep you IR35-compliant, supply you with a P60 and employ an expenses policy approved by HMRC themselves. Stay on a friend′s sofa,and there′s £25 in it for you. Working away from home? Staying with friends or family? Then claim £25 a night to cover food and accommodation. Or, if shunning them all by staying in a hotel, you can claim up to £95 a night (receipts required), with £18 for food and drink and £5 for daily expenses (no receipts required). All HM Revenue & Customs-approved. Your laundry bills needn′t come outof your own pocket. If you′re staying in a hotel while away on business, you′re entitled to £5 for personal expenses every night. (Or £10 if abroad.) This covers laundry, personal calls, newspapers, alcoholic drinks and videos. And you needn′t keep receipts. You can claim back business-related phone calls (and the VAT) on both landlines and mobiles. Postage, too. And all HM Revenue & Customs-pproved.
Rediscover evenings. Rediscover weekends. And, in the process, rediscover your family. Simply fill in a weekly timesheet and leave the rest of your admin to your own personal business manager, courtesy of Tarpon. We′ll also give you a P60 every year. And you may not even need to fill in a tax return. It′s no accident that we provide £20m of insurance cover.
Make a slip-up at your place of work, and you could land -- with a painful bump -- in court. So we provide our contractors with £20m of cover, comprising £10m employers′ liability, £5m public liability and £5m professional indemnity. That′s far more than our competitors offer, and should be sufficient for all but the most epic of catastrophes.
Hillary puts her faith in Texas and Ohio to retain hope of nomination
By Leonard Doyle
Thursday, 14 February 2008
As news of her defeats in Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC sank in, Mrs Clinton was as far away as possible, courting Hispanic voters in El Paso, Texas. She did not mention Tuesday's defeat, even as the wheels started coming off her campaign. Mrs Clinton's deputy campaign manager Mike Henry, who ran her field operations, quit in an internal power struggle.
But by yesterday morning, her campaign was on the offensive, demanding Barack Obama engage in more televised debates and accusing him of misrepresenting her positions.
Part of Mrs Clinton's strategy is to build a "firewall" in the Ohio and Texas primaries on 4 March, to hold back the prairie fire of enthusiasm driving Mr Obama forward. But staking everything on one or two important races is a very high-risk strategy, one which failed Rudy Giuliani in Florida, forcing him out of the Republican race.
In her desperate attempt to wrest the Democratic ticket for the White House from Mr Obama, well-heeled backers of Mrs Clinton are now expected to turn to the dark arts of the political playbook, including discrediting her opponent. It would be a role reversal for Mrs Clinton who once complained that there was "a vast right-wing conspiracy" out to get her.
But if the fight turns ugly, Mrs Clinton could end up wrecking both her and Mr Obama's chances of winning the White House in November. The Clinton campaign has already suffered badly by trying to raise the issue of Mr Obama's use of cocaine as a youth and then attempting to use the race card against him before and during the South Carolina primary. But more is now expected and the Obama campaign has said all along that there will be a lot of turbulence before it clinches the nomination.
Mrs Clinton's latest strategy could be to discreetly encourage independent organisations to fight on her behalf – a variation of the "Swift Boat" campaign that helped destroy John Kerry and win George Bush a second term in 2004. Some of her wealthiest backers are drawing up plans to skirt around election laws and run their own independent advertising campaigns attacking Mr Obama ahead of the primary battles in Ohio, Texas and elsewhere.
Susie Tompkins Buell, the founder of the Esprit clothing company, is considering paying for advertisements that would deliver a harder punch than the bland, uplifting advertisements the Clinton campaign is running. "We're just trying to figure out things to do to help," Ms. Buell told The Wall Street Journal. "We all feel very passionate about it, so the question is, what is the best thing we can do to get her across the finish line?"
Mrs Clinton and her staff are forbidden by law from talking to anyone running an independent campaign on her behalf. But in an extended television interview on the eve of her defeat in the "Potomac Primaries" she did the spadework for anyone contemplating running "attack ads" on her behalf. "We still don't have a lot of answers about Senator Obama and his dealings with Mr [Tony] Rezko," she said referring to a former political backer who is facing trial on federal corruption charges.
The danger for Mrs Clinton is that attack ads by independent organisations could backfire. Mr Kerry has already warned against the sort of tactics employed by the "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" group that questioned his record in Vietnam.
