Congratulations! You’ve had a pay rise, received a bonus or got a new job, taking your earnings above £50,000 for the first time.
The bad news, if you have kids, is that you will now be hit by what some have claimed is a “tax on children”.
But the good news is that there are perfectly legitimate and morally acceptable ways of reducing your liability – most notably, by paying more into your pension.
Ritchie will be upset. Because that’s tax abuse, deliberately changing your actions in order to avoid righteous taxation. Tsk. And in The Guardian, too.
