  1. Blanket decisions of inside IR35

    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...

  2. Pemie role - jump ship before 5th April

  8. A quote from way back

    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...
