Judicial Review - Landlord Tax Grab

I am so glad that this action has been organised. The vast majority of landlords I have spoken to had never heard of Claus24 and were shocked when I have explained it to them. Most still bury their heads in the sand.

Within weeks the government dropped this bombshell which has devastated any plans I had of being able to keep and build on a profitable business. The new tax will put me into the higher tax bracket and so means I will have to sell up and lose the majority of any inheritance I would have got.

I am grateful for any action that is taken against this short sighted policy. I have pledged funds towards the fight and will be following closely
