To discuss the changes to PS contracts that are due later this year.
What's this all about then?
In the 2016 Autumn Statement, the Chancellor confirmed that from the start of the following tax year (from April 6th 2017), the status of contractors / freelancers in the public sector would be assessed by the public sector body (PSB) engaging them either directly or...

Is there a list somewhere to identify which organisation falls under public sector?
The reason for the question is I have been put forward by the agent to couple of organisation for new role. The agent did mention that it's not public sector but I don't want to take his word at face...
I'd really appreciate someone sanity checking my logic as I am new to contracting (and most of the threads here are related to existing public sector contracts).
I am due to start contracting (CL1 via capita) with a public sector body after 6th April. The setup is that the PSB...
Right so, have read an IPSE article and had a bit of a trawl around here, including a look at the classification spreadsheet NUK posted link to. I'm still struggling to really pin this down though. Apologies in advance if there is a post somewhere that answers this...
I've been contracting for...
Visited a senior mortgage advisor at high street bank yesterday. I explained that I will be changing from self employed to umbrella company. He confirmed with his on-line underwriter advisor that my status will change to contractor. He confirmed I will not be able to re-mortgage in August. I will...
Are people planning to leave their current contracts by April 2017 ?
What's the chances of being billed for PAYE from the date they started.
I'm assuming the revenue will investigate anyone who goes from outside to inside IR35 working on the same contract or similar ?
And his sidekicks.
What do you think of the latest statements from majority of PS orgs declaring many roles outside?
How can this be permissible? I have had my working arrangements agreed in a separate document prior to my start date of 13.3.17. Practices are outside of scope.
PSB has informed agency that they are going to deem all contractors inside as they don't want to take the risk. PSB has said to...
I've just been told I'm deemed inside IR35 (as I thought I would be - it's easier and safer from a public sector perspective). Interestingly I've plugged my details into a couple of IR35 take home calculators and they come out with 2 different figures, about £1,000 per month apart (contractor...
I usually work as a locum (and have a limited company) for social enterprises or community interest companies.
Are these considered as private or public sector organisations?
Also, if I continue to be paid via my LTD company, and my agency deduct tax and Ni - would I also have to pay...
Deleted - nothing to worry about Semtex / teapot418
Been thinking about this for a while as a PSC.
What if I setup the company in my partners name dissolve my compamy? Now I'm an employee with a shareholder?
Please tell me this is possible! Cheers!
Poll is in relation to the new rules.
To make the sample accurate please only vote if you are or very recently were a public sector contractor and are affected by the new legislation.
All votes are private.
Gov needs to splash 245m on IT contractors
As both a contractor and a buyer of services from other contractors in the public sector I have been following the IR35 developments over the last few months and taken advice. I have come to the view that if anyone is keen on continuing to work in the public sector, retaining limited company status...
We need to focus on the flexibility that microbusinesses and small businesses deliver because they provide a unique adjustment factor in the economy. One reason why the Government's IR35 initiative has been so damaging and destructive is the fact that it has hit at the most flexible part of the...
A friend of mine is working for a Government body who decided that they would use the Employment Status Checker tool provider by HMRC to determine each ltd contractors status.
They've changed tact slightly and have now emailed all contractors and asked (well, copied and pasted from the tool...
This may be a stupid question and has probably been asked a million times before :eyes but can some kindly soul steer me in the right direction?
Advice needed quickly please :eek
1. Contracting to PSB via agency - contract currently outside IR35- ltd company
2. PSB recently...
Slightly complicated chain of people taking their cut from the end client. All reluctant to declare. End client quiet.
Do I keep working presuming no change?
Stop coming in post April 6th until I have something on paper?
Could they wait until May 1st, declare inside, then take April 6th -...
Someone made this point on another thread but it sort of got lost in the various points being made and thought it was worth asking separately:
If you are a member of IPSE and have a valid contract review is there any point to having IR35 insurance for a Public Sector contract if the end-client...
Sorry if this is a silly question but does this finance bill have to go through both houses and receive royal assent by 5th April in order to be law and come into effect by 6th april?
Its still showing as:
"The date for Second Reading has not yet been announced" on the house of commons...
I've not seen a posting about a calculator of some sort. My contract is being deemed inside IR35 by HR. The client is keen to keep me on, so he's asked me how much does my rate need to increase by to bring in the equivalent rate I am on pre-IR35. I understand it's not a simple...
