    You can always tell a Yorkshireman, but you can't tell him much.

    Oh and he uses ''the" in front of everyone's name when he talks about them...

    you don't hire an agency or an umbrella. They hire you.

    When you say the agency take 10%, do they then loan you the money as a tax avoidance vehicle? That's the only situation I'm aware of where 10% is taken from your day rate before you getting it.

    I can't help. Your English is so bad your post makes no sense. I am starting to think sockie. No one can work for a client with that level of English even if you are a coder.

    And think all your problems come down to a really poor grasp of the English language.

    There is no such thing as before IR35. It's been around thick end of 15 years. There is inside and outside. If you don't get that you aren't really a contractor.

    Deducted 10% fee? I'd be willing to bet they've already deducted their cut before it's offered. That's their margin and we get the rest. To let them say here is a rate and we keep 10% is very unusual indeed. Sounds like newbie tax.

    If you are carrying on working for the same client you could be caught going outside to inside (but looking at the post who knows what you are) which means you were inside all along so in a bad situation.

    Role will be an agent as it always was. Didn't you do your own accounting? It's just someone else doing your accounting now.

    Your old situation was Client-->Agent-->Your LTD-->You
    Your new sitaution is Client-->Agent-->Umbrella-->You

    Ask the agent if they are flexible with umbrella choice? If not then there is your answer.

    Most of the above could be wrong as your post is very difficult to understand.
    Thank you Northernladuk! you answered me most question and very clear. Can you tell me what is newbie tax? it is strange that my agent tell me they charge me extra more.

    To be fair it's not some made up story about himself and it does contain one, nay, two correct facts so it's infinite improvement for him.
