    Default new here on the forum and to this contract world

    Just posting to say hello and introduce myself.
    I'm a new IT contractor in London, will start Monday on my first contract, after many years of perm roles.
    Happy to be here and take advantage of this community's knowledge, hopefully I can get confident in the coming months and help other noobs.
    Thank you in advance for your time and apologies as I know I will break some of the obvious rules and ask silly questions.
    Moving on to read the FAQ and the sticky posts, lots of info here... THANK YOU !

    Silly questions are allowed - provided there's some evidence you've read up on the basics! Some things are simply too convoluted to understand in one go. Apart from all the legal and monetary stuff, there's a whole mind set needs changing, and that will take a while. So have fun and don't be scared to ask.

    Do read all the guides on here, and get over to www.ipse.co.uk and download their Guide to Freelancing. Some silly questions will then appear to be just that....

    A very warm welcome.

    Which industry are you working in?
    I keep pushing forwards but they keep pushing me backwards. So I have new rules. 1. Don't feed the trolls you know they have no souls. 2. Don't respond to them they'll only post back back again. 3. Don't be their friend they'll only knife you in the back. I have new rules I count them.

    Yes, inside IR35. Using PayStream for umbrella, happy with them, easy to use systems.
    It's been 2 good weeks so far, nothing scary. I feel so much more relaxed than on my previous first few weeks as a perm. Just focused on getting as much done as possible in these couple of months of my contract.
