“Factually wrong” government petition response angers contractors

In response to a petition asking the government to reconsider their proposed dividend tax hike , HM Treasury published a statement which, according to critics, was out of touch with the contracting industry and the needs of small businesses. 

The reply was published on the Parliament website where, once a petition reaches 10,000 signatures it must receive an official response from the government.

One contractor writing for IT Contracting dissected the government’s statement and explained paragraph by paragraph why it was “factually wrong” and removed from the realities of running a small business.
