    Would suggest you need 35% to break even if you're local. A lot more than that if you're travelling/staying away.

    If that's true then this is a success story for HMRC.

    depends on how much bench time you can afford - most people aren't willing to claim job seekers allowance to tide themselves over.

    Sometimes a 10% cut is better than leaving and hoping for something more especially when the other options have additional costs...

    Wrong. In your haste to have a dig you made a big mistake. 10% may be affordable, each to his own. But I said BREAK EVEN. :-)

    But yes I would agree that each should be taken on its merits.

    BTW - you can harp on about JSA until the sun implodes but I'll still claim it in future if I decide its worth it.

    And I was pointing out why people may stay even if the rates were slightly lower - oh and its nice to see that you rise to the JSA bait every time we hit you with it....

    I agree - as with all gigs, take it on its own merits. To be honest, I dont think JSA would ever sway me either way - its only 75!

    Yes yes :-) You do know I havent claimed it for years??

    I'm personally seeing the same rate for inside/outside of IR-35 in Bristol. They mostly want to pay 350 either way. Seems like a much better deal to get something outside of IR-35.

    Feels like BS legalisation. You're not really an employee if they can get rid of you within a week, inside or outside of IR-35.

    It does seem very mean spirited. You pay tax for it so you should get it paid back. I personally wouldn't bother simply due to the sum of money being very small but it might go further for some other people.
