    Did you talk about the weather in the staff kitchen too ? in fact did you use any of the staff facilities on site then im sorry but in order to KEEP out side of IR35 and keep your status as a real independent contractor you can not engage in any activity that permanent works would normally do or use any on site facilities ie hold it till your off site do not use the staff toilets! and always have one of the permanent members of staff make you a coffee, make it clear that you can not under any terms can make your own coffee using staff facilities as it would affect your TAX status ! make that bit well known to all of your so called "colleague".

    You need to keep clear line between them and you, you are different from them you are not just one of the team you ARE independent its a hard life but that's the way it has to be purely for tax purposes.

    ps act like that and no one would ever use the words "respected colleague" again to describe you.

    I can imagine dividend tax increasing as a balance to them conceding on the T&S expenses side of things.

    Indeed, it might be delayed till after the next election but dividend tax will have the effect so desired for IR35 pretty soon.

    Hmm. I hope not. Guess we are going to have to wait and see.

    Yeah but that desire is so badly misplaced it's the wrong tool for the wrong desire.... They want us all to be inside. This simply isn't the case so a one size captures everyone simply can't be the solution.

    Yes it is, but @ 7.5% it is only partially an IR35 replacement. When the divi tax is equivalent to NIC's then IR35 becomes redundant and can be repealed. At a stroke a whole industry disappears too, IPSE, QDOS, and others all will become irrelevant.
