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...

  2. 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?

Several IT workers in UK are unemployed. ...

  4. 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...

  8. PS Contracting Post April 2017 - Work Through 2 LTD Companies

    If the expected changes to public sector contracting come in next April whats to stop someone just setting up 2 LTD companies and sub contracting the gig through one to the other. Surely this way the first company would be liable for making the tax choices for the other. Am I over simplifying this??

  11. Thinking outloud - getting round the new PSC rules

    Now my plan for getting round the new PSC rules is very simple. Write code, creating a set of packages that I can sell to others and stop being a bum on seat contractor but I've been thinking (dangerous I know). The one get out clause in the new PSC rules is where materials are provided and...

    A short while back - before all the Brexit furore - HMRC announced worrying plans to radically change the way IR35 works for public sector engagements. IPSE will robustly fight the plans announced in the consultation, published on May 26th, which the government intends to come into force from April...

  17. Compliance company advising clients to label all contractors as 'supervised'

    According to the article on today's home page, CXC Global (never heard of them before) are advising end clients to label contractors as 'supervised', or at least that's how it reads. The article refers to an agency that appear to have advised clients to do the opposite. I assume because the...
