    So it's okay for sole traders or businesses to avoid tax, because the government aren't transparent?
     
  2. :lol: love getting you going. That'll be a £100 bill for my time. I accept bank transfers or card payments. I'll do it for £60 cash in hand though x
     
  3. No real need for them but apparently it really hits charities hard as lots of people give that copper into buckets etc

  5. It'll be paid for with dirty, tax avoided money though.

    I agree. But a wholesale crack down should be done. It's unfair that people who scrape by are subsidising multi national companies that make billions in profits. If they paid their fair share then that £100 job could legitimately be £80, then we're all winners and not just Jeff Bezos.

    Been saying it for years - I'd rather throw them in the bin than carry them around. Pointless.

    Someone pointed out that 1p is now worth less than what 1/2 p was when that was scrapped.

    I can only just about see the point of 5p pieces tbh. Only just.

    Apparently in the pennies made 1983 or older, there's 2p worth of copper in them. So if you got loads could sell them for scrap. Ditto with the 2p's having 4p of copper.

    A big no from me. I’d not fill my Humpty Dumpty piggy bank with silver coins. Poor feller would end up redundant which may be too much for the lad wot with the accident an that.
