    Yep, you are an employee so no determination required, as IR35 determines employment status

    Yep, no determination required as you will be being paid via PAYE and HMRC are getting their Employer NI payments (which is what they care about).

    No can do, I'm afraid. If determined inside the net figure must be paid to the Ltd company with the agency or end client making the deductions

    As long as the end client has determined me inside, that would cover their backs if HMRC come calling. It would be up to me to decide how I structure the payment as long as I pay all the required PAYE tax. Would this be okay?

    Not really. The rather pedantic point I was making is that YOU do nothing. You are employed now. You don't have a say in the process anymore. You chose you pension amount. The rest goes through the system and ends up in your pocket. It's not your job anymore.

    There will be other deductions outnofnyour take home like holiday pay as well.

    I'm sure midlandslass will send you an accurate breakdown if you need one.
    Thanks. Right so the Brolly makes a 'company pension contribution' of 40K and then I pay what's leftover (40K) as PAYE salary. So the only difference in that sense from my normal Ltd is that I pay PAYE on 40K instead of low PAYE + divs.

    As Northern Lad said, you can pay more that £40k in via the brolly, but they will claw back the tax over that through self-assessment probably or your tax code!

    Possibility of backdating it if you've been in the scheme for previous years but I'd assume that as we are talking about new brollies then this isn't an option.

    ah ok ... sadly used the earlier years as part of the loan charge pension workaround (c/o Loan ranger)

    btw thanks for the ii tips on the pension threads ... been using them
