    IR35 PS - So anyone had the discussion yet?

    Those of us with some involvement with PS.....

    I've advised both agency and consultancy (who I work through at their PS client site) that something needs to be sorted. They've mentioned extension (luckily current one ends end Feb which is ideal) but I've said until its sorted its a no.

    Trouble is both agency and client seem totally clueless. Even more so fellow contractors I work with. Of course, most dont even seem to realise it applies to work PAID in April either.

    Can see a lot of people sleepwalking into this and then it all going pete tong to be honest...

      If that's the case then they probably deserve it, far too many contractors actually have no idea of what's going on. I had to explain to a guy at my last gig that he shouldn't claim any expenses when he was given an extension that took him over 24 months he was clueless

        As have I - at the moment I am assuming I am leaving at end Feb.

        Local client manager here is flapping a bit about that but, like I said, no-one else seems interested.

          Yep got guys here who've been here 3 years and still claiming expenses. Never heard of IR35 either.

          I keep going on about joining IPSE but they say its too expensive!

            They are part of the reason that contractors get a bad name, you'd think there would be a way to pick them up for claiming expenses for that long.

              Currently at a large Government department in Westminster

              And yesterday a mail came out regarding our annual review of our working practices.

              This year the contractors only needs to answer 6 question out of 30 and the head of department answers the remaining.

              Will be interesting to see what happens and what these Qs are.

              My contract ends April 5th, 1 week billing so will be ending it mid March.

                I'm out of here next Friday. Was offered 6 month extension but we've had an email stating we will all be inside from April.

                I think the most frightening thing coming out of all this is how clueless the majority of contractors are and how the agencies/clients don't understand a word of it either. What the hell is going to happen come April I just don't know

                  Assume you have a notice period then?

                  Wonder how many people are in contracts which run over so cant get out of (easily)?
