This seems useful.
Wondering how you're approaching time here?

The calculations would always have to be current. I was thinking of spinning off a gem to or api wrapper for HMRC data, to just capture the bandings, thresholds and rates... but i think that would need to be an array of tax years with figures held as values.

What would that do to your cucumber tests?

Could we wrap them in a context:

Given I am trying to assess my tax liabilities for the tax year 2019-2020?

Could then get it to update those whenever we get new bandings?

Yeah, the experiment really didn't get that far. But I think I'd do it with a Given, as you say. Given is the tax year 2019 or somesuch. Do they always change on a tax year basis, or do some things change mid-year? Booze tax, for instance.
