  2. 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. Maybe by putting them in a stickie and adding when we get new ones we can bat some of the drudgery off. I have given canned answers from what I read on the forum but you know how...

  6. Sticky Thread Sticky: Behaviour in the Professional Forums

    I have noticed an increase in squabbling and bickering in the Professional forums of late. I am not amused. I do not care who starts the squabbling. I will finish it by banning all participants. The more persistant the squabbling the longer the ban. Feel free to disagree and correct but...

I have never charged for an...

  5. Been offered some work.. contract question

    Hi all, Just been offered some work direct with a client (approx 10 days), problem is its a friend of a friend, I know the guys and don't think they would pull a fast one. Unsure how to handle something though, hitting them with a contract pulled from PCG and modified would be overkill for a...

  16. Over small companies' corporation tax band

    Has any contractor running a one-man-band Ltd Co. ever managed to get above the small companies' corporation tax band of 300,000 profits? I calculate you would have to make over 1200 a day and work 250 days a year and have very few expenses to achieve this.
