Forum: The Future of Contracting

Debates on tax, IR35, T&S and the impending zombie apocalypse.

  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Contractors United will never be Shafted!

    We don't know what's going to happen on 25th November when the Autumn Statement is published but I think we're all agreed that our industry will be hit in some way - whether it will be a swift uppercut or a knock out punch we don't know :eyes Whatever happens I really think that our voice needs to...

  2. Professional Service Firms vs Labour Services

    Apologies if this has been asked & discussed many times - in which case my search-fu is lacking. I've re-read through the T&S proposal document (having only skimmed it last month) and in particular the part that lets the big consultancies off the hook -- i.e. the presence of Employment...

  3. Any point in contracting after April 2016?

    Hi All, Just a quick question for people. The way things are going at the moment, is there going to be any point in contracting after April 2016? I have been a contractor since 2010, and have managed to work in unbroken contract roles since that time so have been very lucky I suppose....

  4. What do you think will happen to agencies next April?

    So, I'm after some thoughts and inputs on this, we've been bouncing idea's about here at work, and it would be interesting to hear what you guys think will happen. This is based on the assumption that all of the changes that are currently being debated happen - no expenses if through an agency...

  5. Make sure your tax investigation cover is in order

    Don't Be Outlaws This may not seem like it is all that relevant to most of us, we aren't going to keep trading if our business is out of money. But it actually could matter. It appears to me they've just made it easier to "pierce the corporate veil" and hold directors liable for the debts of...

    Given change in Dividend Tax does this not become more tax efficient? Anyone seen the calcs for it? I assume if income just over the 100k going to be worse as lose personal allowance, but somewhere over 150k going to be better as marginal rate is 47% rather than the 50.5% with ltd company (20%...

  7. Careful tax planning needed?

    Dunno if it's been mentioned before but...... A thought struck me during a conversation today. We have the timelines for when these issues are going to hit and are knee deep in discussion around it but no one knows for sure as it's in consultation phase etc etc but.... If the IR35 issue is...

  10. IR35 - Back to first principles....

    Reading the discussion document again (its too hot outside and unless I do it now I'll only have to do it later) I'm struck by a simple question.... What do all the parties actually want from the issue / IR35 marketplace? HMRC - want as many people as possible paid by PAYE especially those...

    So that everyone knows exactly what I am doing with the survey here is my current plan for what I'm going to do. 1) I'm setting up a simple website. Yes it may look like I'm trying to replace IPSE - I'm not. I need a website to host the work in progress documents and if I'm doing that I may...

  15. A reasonable balanced article on the Dividend and other tax changes

    In The Register. Even the comments are fairly balanced and resonable. I suspect some denizens of CUK may be posting there already. Are you a Tory-voting IT contractor? Congrats! Osborne is hiking your taxes

  17. Outside IR35 Not Many Changes

    Just catching up on the budget as thought it was about time i did so. From my understanding as long as you fall under IR35 and work via your own limited company and not under the direction supervision and control of the client then the only changes this budget is really implementing is dividend...

    Will the number of contracts that come on the market decrease (and PAYE FTC's increase) if clients are forced to determine IR35 status?
