    TfL tried this one on with me a few years ago. I quoted my IR35 rate, which they naturally refused so I gave them 3 options :

    1) Change the contract
    2) Pay the higher rate
    3) Go back to market

    They went back to market in the end, but yes I was "the only contractor" to have queried this in 5 billionty placements

    Too many BoS contractors about. They'll be in for a nice surprise in 10 months.

    I think you're rather redefining BoS - BoS is any serial single client contractor who generally works full time for a client for a period of months or longer. BoS != IR35 caught (although of course a subset will be)

    Hmm. Seemed to be what I believed a BoS contractor was. Maybe I was confusing a permatractor so will be mindful of that if I talk about BoS again.

    In certain circumstances, BoS may stand for Bag of Sh***. In that case, it's more like the permitractor described earlier in the thread.

    But I'm happy to be a BoS / SSCC and will continue to do so for many years to come, I hope.

    50 a day seems incredibly low when you factor in the additional costs of being inside IR35 (unless you can afford to whack all the money into the pension plan).

    For IR35 caught contracts, my starting price is about 30% more. If there is travel involved, then it's 50% more than the outside rate.
