Contractors and Freelancers Livelihood's Under Threat

As a contractor with a relationship with RACS Group, we are contacting you in the hope you will help us lobby your local Parliamentary Candidates (Prospective MP) and help protect the interests of thousands of contractors like yourself.

HM Revenue & Customs are considering proposals which will prevent contractors from claiming tax relief on their legitimately incurred business expenses from April 2016, including existing travel and subsistence allowances.

This new tranche of proposed legislation will penalise the nation's flexible workforce, potentially reduce their income and add to their administrative burden; in addition, it threatens the very existence of umbrella organisations, personal service companies and other intermediaries.

Given that we are on the cusp of the General Election to be held on Thursday 7th May, now is the perfect moment to lobby your MP and express your dissatisfaction with these proposed measures.

RACS Group, in association with other like-minded intermediaries, has compiled a letter which we hope you will personalise and post or email to your local Parliamentary Candidates (MP).

The proposed new legislation is at odds with the positive impact contractors and freelancers have on the UK economy as a whole; highly skilled, motivated and responsible for generating millions of pounds worth of income to the Treasury, our opinions really should matter.

On behalf of RACS Group, thank you for reading this communique and we hope you will join us in this campaign to give a voice to contractors, freelancers and temporary workers across the nation.
