As participants we're personally responsible for taking care of our own affairs regarding tax, but I don't, and I have never once in 6 years been chased down for it.
I came to my own conclusion as to how we get away with this - The clients having their drugs trialled are always international. Therefore we are technically being employed and effectively paid by companies that are outside the UK. Meaning HMRC are none the wiser.
I could be wrong, but if HMRC somehow knew about it, they would surely be all over it.
So no, the government don't steal any of this income source. Because fuck them.
