    Dunno what you permie rate was, but as a sanity check you're looking at the equivalent of about 35k salary

    One thing I learned during the process, is that few umbrella companies said that I can claim expenses etc upon submission of receipts. But they also said, I need to workout and tell them a fixed number as an expense ahead. This number is fixed and cannot be changed. That fixed amount will be deducted and any balance will be kept by the umbrella. For e.g. if you project your monthly expense as 1000, umbrella will deduct this and pay you based on your receipts. If your receipts are worth 400, you will be deducted 1000, you get paid 400, the balance 600 would be taken by them. I guess they call it as fixed expense model or something. But I felt it was bit fishy, so didn't go with that option.

    I have a feeling that being inside, your day rate is way too low. Are you sure you will be getting at least 6.70 after tax deductions?

    So you started work before realising and then just left the client in the lurch?

    We just agreed to terminate the contract. Wise move from the client (saved money by not paying for the notice period) + I didn't charge for that one day.

    Happy to have a chat and explain it to you kysto.
