Тяжела и неказиста жизнь британского юриста

Стоит внимательно почитать тем юристам, кто очень хочет жить в Британии. Заем на учебу, съемное жилье, огромный рабочий день и заработок 2.5 тыс. рублей за день. Сравните с заработком адвоката в Москве (только реальным, а не декларируемым) от чего еще отнимите британские налоги и цены на лондонский транспорт.

I have worked as a criminal barrister since 2007. I am 31 years old, state-school educated and from a single-parent family. I became a legal aid criminal barrister because I was committed to representing those who could not afford to pay for a lawyer.
I had to take out a loan to pay for my legal education. I knew this was a risk because I was not going to become a well-paid commercial lawyer, but I was prepared to take that risk because justice for all matters to me.
Even though I have a very busy practice, it has been a constant struggle: I work extremely long hours; I sometimes earn as little as £50 per day; I struggle to pay my rent and expenses each month, and I remain in debt.

Четвертый, нах!

Четвертая "экономическая" выдача за последнее время. А раньше 10 лет по "экономике" почти не выдавали. Какие-то неправильные экономические преступники нынче пошли... Вот в наше время суд смотрел человеку в глаза и понимал, что перед ним - "жертва незаконных политических гонений". И отказывал в экстрадиции. А теперь, человеку честно заработавшему пару миллиардов, уже и спокойно жить негде :)

Немного современной юридической мудрости

If you’ve watched Breaking Bad, you’ll be familiar with Saul Goodman. Being a ‘criminal’ lawyer, Saul is perhaps not the character to model your career on, but nevertheless he can still teach us a few things. Here are some of my favourite Saul Goodman quotes…

CONFIDENCE

“If you’re committed enough, you can make any story work. I once told a woman I was Kevin Costner, and it worked because I believed it.”

BRUTAL HONESTY (AKA FRANK AND FEARLESS ADVICE)

“Look let’s start with some tough love, alright? Ready for this? Here it goes: you two suck at peddling meth. Period.”

KNOW WHEN TO SAY ‘NO’

"Better safe than sorry. That's my motto."

BUT RECOGNISE THAT SOMETIMES YOU’RE GOING TO DO IT ANYWAY… AND CHARGE FOR IT

"Yeah, you do seem to have a little s**t creek action going...You know, FYI, you can buy a paddle."

KNOW THE RISKS IN YOUR BUSINESS

"As to your dead guy, occupational hazard. Drug dealer getting shot? I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say it's been known to happen."

RECOGNISE WHEN PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO HEAR WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY

“Some people are immune to good advice”

ALWAYS HAVE AN EXIT STRATEGY

“For a substantial fee, and I do mean substantial, you and your loved ones can vanish. Untraceable.”

THERE’S A GUY FOR EVERYTHING

“Let’s just say I know a guy… who knows a guy… who knows another guy.”

IN THE END, DO WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU

“Way of the world kid; go with the winner”

Налоговая история танца живота

Известнейшей танцовщице и учителю танцев пересчитали налоги и суд подтвердил, что она незаконно не платила НДС и должна британскому бюджету около $ 80 000. Хороший пример того, что в цивилизованной Британии с регулированием бизнеса тоже случаются проблемы.

Dancer hit with £52k tax bill after judge rules bellydancing is recreation, not education




A world-renowned bellydancing teacher today revealed her dismay at being forced to pay a £52,000 VAT bill after tax inspectors ruled that her art was recreational, not educational.

Audrey Fleur Estelle Cheruvier, 28, who has performed for royalty and celebrities including Gordon Ramsay, was hit with the bill last year.

Inspectors said she should have been registered for VAT since June 2009 and assessed her for £52,921 in back tax.
