    I am an infrequent visitor to this section of the forum but I'm looking for some help.

    We are looking at what might happen in the contracting sector and what contractors might be looking for now and in the near future.

    We have surveyed our own group of clients and have had a largely positive reaction to some ideas.

    We now want to test this outside what might be seen as a captive audience and would invite any who might be interested in hearing our ideas to a physical/electronic meeting.

    It will last about an hour (depending on questions). There is no fee although if we hold a physical session (we are in Holborn) we might stretch to some nibbles and a drink.

    happy for you to PM me. I will respond with an email address and we can go from there.

    Thanks

    To focus minds here, we have drafted a questionnaire as attached.

    If you had 10 minutes and wished to make an anonymous response, this would be very helpful

    Thanks

    WTT Consulting touting for business!

    I would have thought that the last thing contractors need is to get involved with an aggressive tax avoidance scheme, however for the fools that do, you have been warned!

People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." Cicero

    We want to be able to go contracting in a way that doesn’t put us at a disadvantage when working away from home, or we want rights that being inside IR35 ought to give us. And we want to do it legally.

    Which doesn’t require the services of a tax advisor.

    And since you’ve been rather cagey in the ‘what’s in it for me’ mutual benefits stakes, as befits a tax advisor, I’m taking a rather jaundiced eye on this request webberg...

    I am sure it is just a simple contractor investment scheme into The Dutch Antilles film industry repaid from a trust in the form of a loan in a fast depreciating foreign currency. Why must people be so suspicious?

    @ OP: what kind of nibbles?

    FWIW, IMHO, cojak, let's give webberg the benefit of the doubt based on his track record to date? Thanks.
