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. 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...

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

  5. 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...

  16. Direct or agency April 2017

    So come April will going direct have any advantages over agency in the public sector? I'm currently direct but thinking agencies may have some structure setup to get round the new rules. I don't see that being possible direct. Anyone got any thoughts?

  18. PCG and QDOS can save the day with IR35 insurance for agencies

    I'm sure the PCG and QDOS have considered this already, but they could perhaps save the day by coming up with an insurance product for agencies/intermediaries. After all the IR35 legislation has not actually changed. QDOS and PCG are currently insuring contractors directly, why can they not...
