Book some time off – HM Treasury needs your help!

With the 2012 Finance Bill looming (and aren’t we all excited) HM Treasury are asking for your help. 

Accounting professionals and lawyers – they want your comments to ensure the legislation works as intended before they put it before Parliament next spring.

Do they really think that busy professionals have the time to do this? The Finance Bill with explanatory notes is 1100 pages (ok – the overview is ‘only’ 300 pages) but who has the time (or desire) to wade through this document in their spare time?

The more practical solution for HM Treasury is – if their own accounting and legal professionals are unable to ensure it works as intended – hire ones that are – real professionals who have worked in the real world.
