Forum: The Future of Contracting

Debates on tax, IR35, T&S and the impending zombie apocalypse.

  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Contractors United will never be Shafted!

    We don't know what's going to happen on 25th November when the Autumn Statement is published but I think we're all agreed that our industry will be hit in some way - whether it will be a swift uppercut or a knock out punch we don't know :eyes Whatever happens I really think that our voice needs to...

  1. Blue sky thinking - should we be looking at Plan B alternatives to "PSCs"

    OK, complete blue sky thinking, but given the doom and gloom around should we be at least thinking about possible alternatives to PSCs as these seem to be the target for hector while the likes of the big consultancies who are effectively doing something similar escape the rectal probe. A guy on...

  3. Public Sector Rules, coming to you soon...

    So who's excited about this? I am. Any glimpse as to whether the new spend spend spend era of Conservatism is going to be funded almost entirely by contractors?

  4. End of IT contracting this June?

    I posted this in another thread but thought it's worth starting a new discussion. Times reported on May planning to end IT contracting in the form we know it. There still will be, but most likely all will be inside IR35. For someone like me who sees contracting as means for making more money,...

  7. Thinking of contracting

    PLEASE DELETE THIS POST IF DEEMED INAPPROPRIATE Good Afternoon Folks I hope you're all well. Ever since I was made redundant about 7 years ago, I have had short term temporary contracts - the longest has been for 6 months, and generally they are 3 months or shorter. I have over 15 years...

  8. How many contractors does it need to be a business rather than a PSC?

    Both myself and my wife contract through the same Limited company, and have done for +10 years. While most of her contracts have been through agencies, mine are usually direct. Her current contract is with the Public Sector, thru an agency - so there is concern that they'll from April pay her...

  9. Are we really thinking of off payroll rules for Private Sector?

    Seems to me that prior to the last few budgets/statements this site and others like it have been blind sided with the attacks on Contractors. They've not been able to predict anything from the red box, and have looked a little embarassed afterwards. There's nothing to be embarassed about, nobody...

    I currently work part-time (60%) dealing with online documentation indexing and organisation for a small Swiss NGO in Geneva.

  15. Contractors need to sell themselves as a Cloud resource

    I think that we need to look beyond IR35, to see ourselves as working beyond that and to show companies that contractors are still a valuable resource. As I'm in a project building a new cloud environment for a client, it's suddenly occurred to us that contractors need to sell themselves in the...
