  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: Security Clearance (SC) Q&A Read first before asking questions

    Please find below an accumulation of questions that have featured on some of the many reptitive questions about SC.

  5. State of CL1 contracts

    Are the current (as of now, Feb 2015) CL1 contracts any better in terms of IR35 risk, or has anyone succeeded in negotiating the content of CL1 contracts? As a supplementary question, do C@pita still have their finger in the pie in terms putting a markup on the "rate"?
