TRADESMEN have said they are happy to give receipts for cash jobs provided they can use ridiculous fake names.
Gardener Roy Hobbs said: “Labour are absolutely right, cash-in-hand work should be documented and I always offer receipts signed either ‘Roland Rat’ or ‘Donny from New Kids on The Block’.
“Obviously I don’t put my own name, because then I would have to pay tax.
“I’m not an idiot.”
Householder Margaret Gerving said: “If I suspected that a large, intimidating tradesman had put a fake name like ‘Frankenstein’ on a receipt I would definitely challenge him.
“Actually on reflection, I would not do that.”
