    I'm bored.

    I'm watching a spider catch flies on my window following a successful go live.

    I'm reading about someone who claims to be in his 30s and knows everything about everything.

    And I'm waiting to hear about one of the people on here who works for Hector sending him a PM.

      Yes my obsession with rates and salaries so that I periodically and regularly decide which one is better and where I should be pivotting to - Highly beneficial to always become better and you should try it.

      My calculations have been right - If I am wrong I asked you for your kind input already - No one actually double checked or discussed the numbers - We have some geniuses say that 75K passive income should mean retirement

      And my favourite "People get into contracting for many reasons. It's not just about tax" OF COURSE. For bettering humanity people become contractors and eneter the shady world of one man bands and limited companies from their bedrooms - Nothing whatsoever to do with tax )

        You still here?

        And WTF: The main reason people get into contracting is the rates, and then people try to maximise their take home.

        The main reason people choose a Ltd Co. over a Brolly is the tax. But if you can't work this out, there's little hope for you.

          Mate, there is a difference between tax evasion and tax avoidance - what you're asking is for ways to evade tax (illegal) because you've already max'd your opportunities to avoid over-paying tax (legal).

          You also assume all contractors only contract to avoid tax - this is so flawed is comical. Paying less tax was never a consideration for me going contracting although it was a nice by-product. I also take FTC contracts (so fully in PAYE) and umbrella contracts as well as LTD (well used to but closed my company down). Personally I contract for the flexibility to take extended time off when I feel like it and not just the odd 2 weeks each year.

          Others will be contracting for different reasons - not everyone is trying to break the law

            1) work 250 days for six years
            2) able to retain a lot of the profits without taking them out of the company structure and bought BTL properties with them
            3) Put through two people on the payroll as company secretary
            4) Expense a lot of items

            Maybe for you it does not work out but for me it definitely did

            I hope we can now keep the discussion on the topic of salaries rather than try and sabotage the thread
            If you're comparing like for like roles, there's no way that a £120k salary job plus benefits equated to £650 day rate. Yes, you might have had a more beneficial tax outcome but you worked with hardly any holiday for six years. The bigger question is why you weren't on a day rate of £800 plus?

            WRT your original question, if you want to find comparisons, search for annual salary and contractor rate surveys that are published by several agencies such as Hays or Robert Half.

            IIRC Robert Half are more FS orientated than Hays. The figures are a decent guide by role and sometimes region. I get these types of guides as I've used their services, sometimes they become publicly available a few months after they are published.
