A ferry engineer has won a legal battle over the taxman about offshore concessions for sea-farers.

Ian Cameron refused to give way after HM Revenue and Customs told him he did not qualify for more than £70,000 in offshore tax breaks granted to seamen.

He was told the concession, given to sea-farers who are onboard ships outside UK territorial waters at midnight on any given day, could not apply to Mr Cameron as his ferry was not bound for a foreign port.

The judge said the tax authorities had, for many years, reassured seamen that they could qualify for "a day of absence" from the UK even if their ship cast off from a British berth before midnight and even if their voyage did not take in a foreign port.

That's very good news.

Thanks Ray for highlighting that, didn't hear about it.
