I am not sure I can add much to this tweet:
This tax treatment of wealthy non-doms - below - is in sharp contrast to the inflexible rules for the Self-Employement Income Support Scheme which denies help to millions of selfemployed who are just outside the dates or just under the 50% profits rule. pic.twitter.com/kVRM5FLoFU

How is it HMRC can play make believe for the wealthy but show so little understanding to others?
Of course the rule of law does need to be upheld, but with sensitivity.
Cases like this, which simply evidence that a blind eye is being turned to tax owed by the wealthiest, really do not help HMRC’s case When it claimed that it is an even-handed institution. The overwhelming evidence is that it is not.
