    Won't somebody think of the accountants?
    Yes absolutely all contractors will quit.

    I don't know when I joined CUK (2008?) but I am sure people have been saying since at least then that contracting is over/not worth it. Strangely, most of them are still contracting and still saying it.

      They've been saying that since 1999. We're still here.

      This thing, contracting, is not over by a long way.

        Even if inside IR35 I would still choose to contract. Yes I'll take a financial hit but will still be comfortable compared to the permies. There is a reasonable amount of work around where I live so travel costs don't really come into it. I will still have the plus points of

        Avoiding office politics
        No Personal development/reviews
        Not worrying about how much holiday I can take
        Choosing what I work on
        Moving on if I'm not enjoying what I'm working on

          Just as in most things in life really. The smarter ones already quit and moved on to pastures new and in my case, far more lucrative as a bonus too. By the time the majority catch on, the ship has sailed. It's true here just like everywhere else. HTH.

            That may be true but over the same period those contractors who are still contracting continually bemoan how contracting is not as good as it used to be. Go figure.

              Nostalgia isn't what it used to be, either
              Entropy is NOT what it used to be.

                I work for the Public Sector and they have all contractors outside IR35. So much easier as the client assumes liability, not the individual contractor.

                    This should provide a fair amount of comfort for contractors more generally. If the public sector are prepared to make a call like this (which may well be after careful consideration of contracts/working practices) then presumably at least some in the private sector will be happy to as well. If some private sector businesses do it, then others will feel pressure to follow suit, as otherwise they'll likely lose the best talent.

                      Yes, that's right, I don't.
