It appears that emigration officials have become the latest group to feel the wrath of a British public disgruntled about exorbitant bonuses.
Prior to the chancellor’s pre-Budget report yesterday (December 10th) which slapped a 50 per cent tax on bank bonuses, it emerged that bonuses totalling nearly £300,000 have been paid to public officials working in the UK emigration system.
Emigrate.co.uk reports that it has once more raised questions over how taxpayers’ money is being spent during this period of acute economic strain.
The chairman of Home Affairs Keith Vaz was prominent among a cadre of MPs who objected to the pay awards, with the official describing the news as "astonishing".
While British banks are likely to be reeling after yesterday’s bonus tax announcement, British expats may also be weighing up the effects the pre-Budget report will have on them.
From 2011 onwards, the Treasury will implement a 0.5 percentage point hike in national insurance contributions, which may be of interest to those who are still paying voluntary contributions while working overseas.
