    This link doesn't link to the survey - it just goes to a generic news page.

    On that page there is an item titled "Take part in our policy survey" but that includes a load of questions about the EU referendum & other stuff as well as the T&S proposals.

    Do they have a survey solely concentrating on T&S?

    If not, they're clearly not taking it seriously enough.

      The IPSE survey closed on 13 September - and it was changed to members only.

        I still speak to other contractors who know nothing about these proposals & it would be good to be able to direct them somewhere where they can register their disapproval.

        Perhaps there's an ePetition for this?

          I work in a Department that has about 30 contractors. Most live within a 30 minute drive of the office. Most of them dont see the 'loss' of expenses as any great deal.

          When I said well what about when you're not 30 minutes drive away and staying in a hotel \ B&B \ digs?

          They looked at me as if Id grown 2 heads.

            Are they new contractors?

            Oddly even the new contractors I spoke to worked in different locations as permies so understood about expenses.

              I've been in a place like that. Most were ex permies with a notable number of them that had never worked anywhere else. They won't care as most of them passed the 24 month threshold a number of years ago anyway. If there was a heaven on earth for HMRC this was it lol.

                  We had a survey running which has now closed which got 700 responses - if you and others would like to put something together to register your disapproval and the reasons why I'll be happy to add your comments to our consultation submission - you'll just need to do it quickly as there are only a few days before it closes. You can email me lisa@contractorumbrella.com

                    They could respond to the consultation directly.
