    LondonPM1's very own pollution thread

    Sticking point has been salary which we are now agreeing -I had been aiming for £80k basic + blue chip package in a good working environment (I know previous colleagues there) vs £600 / day outside IR35.

    Sounds about right currently?
    i posted about this previously - People were saying 60 - 80 in london is the right figure and 100 is the absolute max so that sounds right ball park

    when you talk about package what do you means - 3% pension 20 days holiday and a small 5% bonus ??

    Assuming 80k has some pension contribution on top, it's not as much of a drop as you make out, although it is a drop. Not a bad move financially given the market.
    84% retention is possible if you max out expenses and draw salary and wife also on payroll and you make a few % from VAT

    And it is possible to work 252 days in a year - Sometimes even more if weekends are possible

      How do you make a few % on VAT - you can only do that by using an inappropriate flat rate percentage?

      Thanks for adding another flag on the tax evading checklist.

        Its been a while but flat rate VAT was always worth a few % so its been included - Keep gunning for tax evasion .... Youll get there with someone soon enough for signing a form in pencil rather than ink

          Once upon a time but not since April 2017 - which was 3 years ago so anyone who has claimed they can make money from VAT has been cheating or just plain wrong for the past 2 years.

          And this is the difference between you and me. As with all s you post without doing any research. I'm actually surprised you didn't join a tax avoidance scheme but I suspect you weren't around when they first appeared.

            Except, if you work more than 250 days per year at £600 per day, you'd not be able to claim flat rate VAT

              But that's not what the OP said he was doing. It's just a pile of assumptions you've made, and you've incorrectly confused expenses with income.

                Don't confuse him with facts. It's not kind.

                  Thats only if you could forsee you would exceed that threshold - Could be argued you did not expect to work 252 days and therefore stated under 150K income and threfre registered for flat rate vat
