Gig economy threatens government finances, says May adviser | Business | The Guardian
“There is no question that the growth of self-employment and incorporation is having a significant impact on our revenues.” It is not known how many of the UK’s 4.7m self-employed workers are engaged in work that could also be classed as employment, but if only 10% were, that could imply an annual loss to the exchequer of close to £1bn, according to the Guardian’s estimate.
