What a mess

I dont understand, everyone knew they messed up and that a claw back was on the way. If you held onto the overpayment, there is no impact on your financials. The money wasnt ours in the first place. Bring on the down votes, but its the same with taxes. You need to pay back overpayments. So you put the money aside for when they come and get it. If you've spent the money, you only have yourself to blame.

Taxes, I grew up with and get used to ( though not really, more of a kind). It is more the ' how' and 'how long' it took to calculate without a guarantee it won't happen again. And where does iS need an CEO for? Where is he?

The main difference with iStock and taxes is that with taxes you get calculations and explanations. iStock just grabs back money because they say they have overpaid you.

No real explanations with numbers or explanations how and why this fiasco happened, just the regular totalitarian moves from the iStock regime.

There is no way to check that the sales figures they tell you are correct, how can anyone trust the clawback figures are correct? To take the attitude that "you only have yourself to blame" is insulting. How could we keep the overpayment to pay back after/now? We had no idea how much it was until now, nearly six months later! Hell, we can't even be sure there were any overpayments, we only have the word of proven liars that there was an error. This is then compounded by "keyboard errors", lack of apologies, lack of explanations.......all on top of their already shady history.

Your overall attitude to this industry and the people within it is appalling. You tout yourself as a business and offer opinions on things you have no experience of and then behave like a small child with posts like the one quoted. You lack tact, composure and any form of apathy.

You are a very poor representation of the people in this industry.

You are missing the point, Ron.  Many posters here are saying the AMOUNT doesn't make sense, it's too much (percentage wise) based on the income they normally make. It's not a well balanced, realistic clawback, at least that's how I am reading many of these posts.  I personally would have FAR MORE RESPECT and be FAR MORE TOLERANT of the clawback if they would have attached a detailed financial accounting justifying the clawback. But they just posted am amount.  That's suspicious, very suspicious.

Look I am not disagreeing that its all wrong what IS is doing. I am on your side. But we knew there was a claw back coming, and if you take your expected earnings and put aside the amount possibly too much you would have covered yourself. We are all running a business and we need to anticipate certain things and make sure we cover ourself for financial set backs.

For those of you with easy and predictable taxes, no such thing in Ireland, so count yourself lucky.  :)

I closed my account at IS in January so they wont get their money back from me.

Apologies if I insulted anyone, that is not my intention.
