Simply Business Bulletin - 7th July

Welcome back to the Simply Business Bulletin.

As usual, we’ve rounded up the best of the business web. This week we’re looking at an massive HMRC blunder, hopes for the future of self-employment, and a one million dollar camel race.

We also want to hear from you. Have you seen something that we should include in next week’s Bulletin? Email us at, or tweet us at @SimplyBusiness, and we’ll make sure to feature the best.
