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...
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!
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...
Current PS contract ends and pays before 5 Apr 17.
Current Framework Contract has notified agency that all people on framework are inside IR35, who told me (presumably if you continue on any offered renewal of same contract after 5 April 17).
Might take a long break until things settle down or...
Some Local Authority Legal Departments have departed from the Local Authority and have started an ABS (an Alternative Business Structure). They then tender for work from other LA's.
They then charge out and act as a private law firm thus making a profit (or at least that's the intention!).
I'm on contract in public sector & current agency is likely to force me to use an umbrella company.
If thats the route I have to take, I want to choose my own.
It's been suggested to me that umbrella companies now, are using some sort of offshore process, to maximise pay.
More info on this...
Are we waiting today on the publication of the new legislation and if so, will this impact the IR35 online tool, which i notice is still sitting as BETA?
Can we avoid IR35 as lucky doctors?
I was hoping for some opinions on this scenario:
My PS client has taken the blanket decision that "everyone is inside" - so naturally I'm not prepared to extend my contract that runs out this week.
I've provided them with all the evidence that I'm outside: running the HMRC tool,...
