Follow on from yesterday’s news …Telegraph: Why leading accountants say Child Benefit fines will not work

BBC: High earners face fines over child benefit declaration

Cameron has stated that he does not foresee problems with the policy suggesting that top rate taxpayers would be honest enough to give up the benefit voluntarily. However, the first paragraphs of the BBC news suggests that penalties are going to be introduced for non-disclosure. They really need to make up their minds.

Things seem to be getting more complicated as the days by and I’d personally save myself further embarrasment and lay this one to rest!


Child benefit cuts – a small victory. October 28, 2010

You would have thought the Lib Dems would be delegated to give us some postive news once in a while as they don’t seem to be involved with any real governance, but as this coalition government has consistly been ‘bad cop, bad cop’ we are forced to look elsewhere for good news.

I came across this today, I literally LOL-ed when I read it:
Wall Street Journal Europe: Child Benefit Cut ‘Unenforceable,’ Treasury in a Flap

As reported by Channel 4:
Channel 4 Child benefit cuts could be “unenforceable”

People 1 Govt 0. Buyaka!
