    Default Perm to contractor question

    Hi - I am a permie and have worked for a company for about two years. I am thinking of going contracting there, and the company said there may be IR35 concerns at me doing this. Apparently made more complicated by the fact I was originally a contractor there for about 6 months originally.... Does anyone know of any problems me or the company may face by doing this?

    Thanks,

    Tristan

    The company won't face any problems.. You, on the other hand....

    Read up a bit on IR35 first to get a basic grasp. There are links on the right hand side.
    Then do a search using terms like contractor to perm or similar using the google search method here.

    This has been covered many times and it's not complicated so have a look around first then come back to us with any more specific questions you have.

    Probably a hell of a lot more straightforward to just finding a new client to contract with. Moving from perm to psc with the same end client will really expose you to considerable down side risk/uncertainty.

    If you want to take the contract, you could:

    1. Be inside IR35
    2. Agree a fixed price contract and be outside IR35, or
    3. Get an industry standard, e.g. QDOS, outside IR35 contract and actually use a substitute.

    4. Leave, find a new client and be a proper contractor.

    4a. Take the contract, immediately hand notice in, find a new client and be a proper contractor.
