  2. PS Contracting Post April 2017 - Work Through 2 LTD Companies

    If the expected changes to public sector contracting come in next April whats to stop someone just setting up 2 LTD companies and sub contracting the gig through one to the other. Surely this way the first company would be liable for making the tax choices for the other. Am I over simplifying this??

  5. Thinking outloud - getting round the new PSC rules

    Now my plan for getting round the new PSC rules is very simple. Write code, creating a set of packages that I can sell to others and stop being a bum on seat contractor but I've been thinking (dangerous I know). The one get out clause in the new PSC rules is where materials are provided and...
