In the podcast, CIOT's John Whiting talks to Andrew Hubbard, Vice-President of the CIOT, about a number of issues, including the scope of the proposals, the criteria which must be met to be caught by the proposals, possible exceptions, the issues defining a 'market rate' salary, the administration, the self assessment process and the problems of dealing with rules in practical terms.
They conclude that although the Government estimates about 60,000 businesses could be affected, many tens or hundreds of thousands more may have to assess their operating practices.
The podcast can be heard from the the CIOT's website.
