Note the hypocrisy of seeking to criminalise aspects of the sex industry and then it occurring to someone that there might be a bit of extra cash in it for the Treasury.

After the fiction of the Autumn Statement, and the targets it set for raising revenue, HMRC are after every penny they can get. I agree with FL and I would like to see a consistent government policy which could include legal, licenced brothels which pay taxes.

Or less taxes, less government. Its just creeping taxation more and more. With tax so high are they surprised at the level of avoidance, evasion and people taking extra time off work.

There is absolutely nothing new in this. 

15 years ago, this article appeared in the Telegraph http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/4470391/Privacy-laws-allow-criminals-to-pay-tax-on-illegal-earnings.html the key point being, and I quote, "British fiscal law makes no distinction between profits from legal or illegal activities; both are liable to tax". 

So, and again I quote from the article, "the taxmen should be more vigorous in pursuing full collection of tax from these sources: "It seems there is one law for the criminal rich and another for decent taxpayers. Why does the Revenue deliberately ignore criminal income and resources? It has proven once again that it targets middle England as easy prey for its vulpine activities."

They are all businesses, and all income is supposed to be declared for tax purposes.

HMRC has recently announced that we are all to have our individual tax accounts online. Who will be the first punter to ask to see his chosen escort's tax file before he parts with his cash?
