  1. Charlie and Thomas -- Another Nice Example from HMRC

  9. Specialist roles outside IR35

    Hi and happy new year all, Just wanted to check my understanding. I am a very niche contractor, there are maybe 100 guys in the UK with my skills. This automatically places me outside of IR35, right? I am considering a long gig in UK (maybe up to 2 years work). Thanks and may the...

  13. How many contractors does it need to be a business rather than a PSC?

    Both myself and my wife contract through the same Limited company, and have done for +10 years. While most of her contracts have been through agencies, mine are usually direct. Her current contract is with the Public Sector, thru an agency - so there is concern that they'll from April pay her...
