Well, the last time I had dealings here was probably 2000, when I took the shilling and moved back to permanent employment (entirely due to circumstances - no contract!).
For location reasons I am thinking of looking to contract work to try and be at home more, and this might be the best route to doing that.
I finished when IR35 was gathering speed, so come from 11 years of dividends, nominal salaries etc. I realise now (having watch from a distance) that times have changed, and that the whole regime is very technical in terms of the way contractors are having to carry out their business.
I was wondering what the implications may be of taking a contract as a LTD, with no intention of trying to squeeze the money pot to its minimum, but to take the max salary a rate may allow (assuming I pay the correct tax, NI, ENI). Apart from others thinking I was mad, would this, in the eyes of HMRC, leave me free to get on with doing business, or would the 24 month rule force me to change contracts? I'm really happy to just play everything above board (I'm sure you all do), but also just want to be able to carry on earning without having to be constantly worried about whether I'm in or out of schemes.
Or is it just not that simple?
