It is reported that the Government wants to end the practice of traders being paid in cash as it leads to tax evasion.
If you get paid with cash in hand,
You probably will understand,
It can provide you with a way,
To keep the tax you ought to pay.
The Government says this is bad,
’Cos of the money that you’ve had,
It’s likely that some tax is due,
And … Yes, I’m talking now to you!
If tax is due it should be paid,
Including nanny and the maid,
And window cleaners aren’t exempt,
No matter be they straight or bent.
So do be careful each day and,
When you take payment cash in hand,
Make sure that all your tax is paid,
Or else you might get a dawn raid.
