    NLUK, you'd nailed it up until your last comment. Agencies don't take 25% of YOUR rate, pretty sure that was your whole point.

    With that mentality then if my end client makes a profit above and beyond what I'm making from them then they're taking a percentage of my cut..

    I was trying to keep it simple and not get embroiled in the actual symentics of it actually being the agents money so probably does look confusing to those in the know but yes, didn't word that one too well. Fair point.

    Depends on whether they operate open-book or not (almost none in the UK does). If it is open book, then the rate you ask for is the one forwarded to the client and they take a percentage of that. On the other hand you also get to see their contract with the client as your own contract will be very short and mostly state that "the contractor has the same liabilities to the agency as the agency has to the client as per the attached contract with the client".
