Today, 12:00 on BBC Radio 4 (FM only)
If you are paid a salary there are some proposed changes to the tax system being considered. It has been suggested it would be more effective for salaries to in effect be paid to HMRC and any residue after tax paid to staff. This is being discussed on Money Box today/tomorrow with Paul Lewis:
Should the Revenue get the go ahead to deduct tax directly from our pay packets before salaries reach our bank accounts?
There could be huge repercussions if this goes ahead and there are problems. Imagine talking to a government department to attempt to sort out a salary issue.
May be worth listening and letting others know.http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/
