Honest startups versus City bastards - the CGT conundrum

5% owners only

It seems like you need to own 5% of the business to benefit from the new 10% rate, though. Most entrepreneurs will have their holdings diluted below this level by funding rounds, and I can't imagine many have 5% left when they sell up. This might apply to small businesses in general but not to high tech startups.

I got a replacement XEPS103

Sent my XE103 off - and quite promptly got an XEPS103 in return. This isn't the same kind of thing at all - currently "escalating" my query through netgear customer support to find out if there are any "safe" XE103s.

I note most major online stores have withdrawn their XE103 stock.
