AFTER THIRTY YEARS of being self-employed and having to organise my own financial affairs, there are two things I can say with certainty about taxation. The first is – if you are self-employed or run your own business, you should get yourself an accountant straight away to deal with it. They’ll save you money and keep the Inland Revenue off your back. Secondly – don’t believe anything the media say about tax and business. They’re ignorant and usually biased.
