    Im actually worth way more than that to my current client.

    I just saw them waste £1million+ on 6 unproductive contractors over the last 18 months.

    I have produced 10 times more work for the client than those 6 other contractors combined.

    Not surprisingly they were all shown the door, while im still getting extensions.

        Some of the projects I have worked on went on to earn millions for the end client but not sure that makes me worth a million pounds!

          check contract

          not all the inside ir35 contracts are the same at HSBC - e.g. some had a fixed number of days in them that you could charge during the contract, others not.
          one big thing is notice period if you're inside IR35 - I was there a while back and several departments work was moved to HK - I was lucky in that I was paid 4 weeks notice, whereas others (that where inside ir35!) - got 0 notice. Deffo make sure you have a notice period if your inside ir35, especially with the big banks.

            What happened with your 6 month contract? Did they extend it?

              My experience with resource solutions is that they were useless.

              I'll echo the previous comments - you may be resigned to not working over Christmas week but I have seen contractors forced to take three or four weeks off over Christmas so think about that.

                If you really are the 60x developer you think you are then you would have walked for a much higher rate.
