    Default Dust settles - what happened?

    Been following this thread with interest last few months (private sector contractor) - in anticipation of what is to come next April - what has been the effect of the PS changes? There was a lot of noise before April 06 but since it has gone quiet - are people accepting being inside? Have rates increased? Has everyone left the PS? What gives?

    You cannot tell me that people are not vaguely aware of what said 'pay packet' will be this month, next month, etc?

    Dust still still going up, not even close to settled yet.

    As Cojak pointed out, payments post April 6th have yet to be received. Expect another flurry of activity when they are.

    I got my first pay packet....except the inept agency I go through decided to pay me into my LTD company instead of the new Umbrella company.
    Que a string of headache inducing phonecalls to get sorted, which involved me paying back the agency, then calling the umbrella to let them know and then waiting for the agency to 'process' payment (they didnt have a scooby what to do).
    ...all the while trying to sort this while on holiday out of the country.
    took them 4 (working) days to sort out and i finally got paid today through the correct means.

    Came out to approx 15% less earned not including the business overheads that i still need to cover and expenses i wasn't able to claim back.

    Next stop today is to call the accountant to sort out the random payment that came into the business account and then back out just as quick !

    Apologies what i meant was that my first 'invoice' inside IR35 got paid into my LTD rather than paid to the umbrella company which resulted in me not getting a pay packet from the umbrella as they didnt receive the payment from my agency.

    There's just no way on earth I would EVER even consider being pushed around and told I had to go on some payroll (says a guy who sucked up a few banking rate cuts in his time, but I'm older now, and ANGRIER).

    If this ever happens to the private sector, and I reckon it probably will within a year or two seeing as 'contractors' are just accepting it, then I'm out of the industry for good, and the country.
