    My partner was a contractor with her own Ltd company prior to IR35 rearing its ugly head. She is now working under an umbrella company.

  7. PS IR35 - Paystream and still use ltd instead of umbrella - VAT?

    Confused here. Apparently, if you do it this way, you have to charge vat. At the moment, using normal umbrella, I just fill in timesheet, umbrella processes it and lumps into my current account. I'm looking into payroll service instead, but, apparently, vat comes into it. OK say its 100 a...

  8. Inside IR35 and Expenses - Can you still claim?

    Bit confused now - I thought if client declared you inside IR35 in PS that was it no expenses. I know before April 2017 changes it all came down to SDC. I appreciate it if a PS client declares you inside it may be difficult to deny SDC but is it still "possible"? Got an umbrella telling me I...

  11. Outside IR35 contract unique reference number?

    Just got an offer for an outside IR35 contract for a NHS trust, do I still need a HMRC unique reference number? My agent is saying I don't need it, is this true? It is complicated nowadays.

  12. Got an offer inside IR35. Would appreciate some inputs.

    After being in bench for 7 weeks, my patience ran out and have accepted a role inside IR35 paying 550 (less than my previous rate which was outside). Agent has provided me info for an umbrella company that they recommend. As it is away from home, it would be a weekly commute back to home. ...

  13. PS Advertised Jobs?

    After all the doom and gloom re: PS IR35 in April I was expecting to see a whole load of PS jobs turn up on the job sites as incumbent contractors were all jumping ship. This doesn't seem to be the case though. Not seen any obvious increase in PS roles cropping up on Jobserve. Was the 'doom and...

    Doesn't this just make a mockery of Public Sector IR35? https://www.jobserve.com/FI52t A rate that is probably double what it should be and we, the tax payers (sometimes), are footing the bill. Aside from that, what is the impact on the private sector? Can't see them stumping up rates...

  18. Role Inside IR35 and Outside IR35 with Different Agencies

    I was contacted by an agent for a public sector role listed as IR35 recently. I clarified that the role was inside, and that they would require me to run it through an umbrella company which is not ideal, but they agreed to a decent rate even accounting for that so I went ahead and applied. I...

  19. Contract review - still necessary for PS gig?

    Potentially signing a contract in the PS tomorrow. Client has agreed that gig is outside IR35 but not formally stated this yet. What's the view on getting contracts reviewed independently now? Seems pointless if client now determines status. Perhaps still useful for backup in the event of any...
