I'm new to the forum but have been browsing the threads over the last few days trying to get my head around what we should do. Apologies if the answer is out there already but I'm having trouble finding it.
Both myself and hubby are about to start on our contracting journey and...
I wanted to start this thread specifically to discuss the ONE example provided by HMRC where a PSC contractor is NOT considered to be an employee.
It seems that the right to substitution should lead to an automatic "outside" IR35 determination according to the relevant law:
Sections 61N to 61R apply where—
(a) an individual (“the worker”) personally performs, or is under
an obligation personally to perform, services for...
the circumstances are such tható
(i) if the services were provided under a contract directly
between the client and the worker, the worker would
be regarded for income tax purposes as an employee
of the client
This is the section that hypothesizes on the relationship...
I thought of starting a new thread to perhaps provide an indication of the roles being offered in the public sector.
I don't normally work in the PS. I've performed some roles for my own Local Authority in the past, worked in the NHS before the <=£220 cap and ran a huge roll-out at the PPA in...
Can someone please advise how contributing to a SIPP when using an umbrella company? More specifically what are the benefits and how do they work in practice? Is there a calculator available anywhere?
I have a limited company and I'm currently contracted via an agency to a large private sector company that is working on a project that provides a service to a central Government department.
I'm confused, whilst I'm technically working in the public sector, I'm working via a private sector...
IR35 reforms: Where consultancies are caught :: Contractor UK
Having completed a little digging around I'm pretty sure the answer will be that no one has a bloody clue yet but I'll throw it out there for thoughts and options anyway...
I've got 50% of a Ltd company with 2 employees. The company provides a mix of PM, IT and FS consultancy. Both people...
I started a good public sector contract last October, which my client is keen to renew. The setup is a little awkward, it's basically large national outsourcer -- third party company --- my Ltd company.
I've structured my business outside of ir35 and had the contract amended for ir35...
Hearing a lot of this around the building and even on the tube this morning.
Possible or nonsense?
Is there any mileage in having a storefront for PS clients to buy consultancy days in advance?

So I'm potentially in the frame as I contract for a major consultancy providing IT solutions to a public sector client, now up for renewal that'd take me past the start of the finyear.
What to do?
My client (the consultancy) will almost certainly toe the line as their contract with the true end...
Public Sector contractor? Prepare for changes
Not bad but I don't think the advice to get new contract terms is anywhere near strong enough - I suspect everyone who remains in a contract after April to be targeted by HMRC and a new contract no matter how lovely it feels won't stop the initial...
UK government departments are advising IT contractors to hike their fees by a fifth in order to avert an exodus of self-employed techies that will be hit by a forthcoming tax clampdown, multiple sources have told The Register.

IT Security/Cyber Security.
With the new public sector IR35 stuff, there's likely to be a tulip-storm hitting before April.
Dozens of GCHQ contractors will either decline to renew and try to jump to the private sector, or...just retire.
HMRC is likely to lose a lot/most IT Security...
