  • Not that crazy. I would have thought Sainty Heard would have eeked out the more intriguing benefits, eg discrete use of a quayside apartment for partners having affairs.

  • Why is the cash for spouse contoversial? It is merely a tax saving scheme. Instead of remunerating the partner say £5,000 of which nearly 50% goes to the taxman. Why not pay the spouse the same £5,000 to use up their personal allowance and not pay any tax! The only controversial issue is does the spouse actually do anything to earn this salary? ... and what does HMRC say about it?

  • With equity partners are these incentives not rather irrelevant? They can either be offered them as part of partnership or take the savings through their profit share.

  • This is the neocon economic model in a nutshell. Help, assistance and tax breaks for those who least need it, whilst on page two we have zero hours contracts, the bedroom tax on the disabled and the demonisation of the poor by rich public schooled career politicians who are working hard to make sure they get a nice pay off from their private sector puppet masters the minute they leave office.

  • When I started work in industry, nearly 40 years ago, the large factory site I worked on had its own small medical centre staffed by doctors and nurses (for routine, acute and emergency situations, not for conditions requiring specialist in- and out-patient treatment), a dental surgery and an optician. All free, except for standard NHS charges for dental treatment and optical services, although they were subsidised.

  • Quite disappointing really, what about the free parrotts?

  • Isn't it all the [equity] partners' money anyway? Unless it's more efficient for tax purposes it seems strange to give partners perks which they are ultimately paying for
