  7. 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?

  9. 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...

  13. 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??
