* On 17 October 2022 (shortly after the date of recording of this episode), the incumbent UK Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, made an emergency statement and announced that almost all of the tax changes set out in the Mini-Budget would be reversed. In particular, he confirmed that (in addition to possible future tax increases) the main rate of UK corporation tax would increase to 25% from 1 April 2023 and the IR35 rules affecting self-employed individuals would remain on the statute book. However, as of yet there have been no developments affecting the UK tax treatment of carried interest in the UK since the date of the recording.
