Reply To: Amendment 9 – Oh what fun!

Julian Hobson

How about one of the London authorities inviting the authors of this stuff to come and have a go on some live cases. Using only the tools an average assessor would have, with the deadlines they have, with the variety of cases they have. On the understanding that they will also deal with any queries/appeals that might come up on those or in relation to any other TC issue.

This is total rubbish, simplification it isn’t! add in Pension credits and what have we got ? A festering pile of disjointed and disparate regs that even we who are supposed to be blessed with expert knowledge, can’t navigate. What hope is there for assessment staff who don’t have the luxury of being able to theorise and change their mind as often as we do ?
