Clearly it's not intended to include "unwaged" Company Directors who receive income by way of Share Dividend rather than wages, thereby avoiding income tax; nor the Cameron's who were offered their family membership for free.thirdcrank wrote:I'd hasten to add that I'd not blame anybody who took advantage of this bit of daftness.

You can't avoid income tax on dividends. They are taxed at source at the basic rate and you them declare them on your tax return and pay any additional tax if required.
