Hi,

I've just put my name down for secret santa at work - does this affect my IR35 status? :rolleyes:

No-one will find out cos it's secret right!

Cheers,

RR.

Permies give anonymous gifts to each other during an "amusing" ceremony, whilst contractors get on with keeping the company profitable.

I was a Santa at a party once. The youngsters all knew I was a real Santa, because my Danish sounded like I came from a long long way aways. :alien

A client's staff did Secret Santa a few years back. The next day I asked the person who'd organised it "so what did you get?"
In fact she'd got nothing. There were an odd number of names in the hat, and she thought that if you had an odd number, there'd be one person left over at the end without a present. So she unselfishly took her own name out, the daftie.

How sweet. How sad. Where's the gently-weeping-smily?

After pulling out the name of the girl who was organising SS (no longer secret then!) she told me that she was interested in 'Double Entry'...

After spraying my cup of tea all over my desk she then advised me that this was in fact something to do with Accounting! :eek

I thought all me xmas had come at once! ;)

Sadly, what you thought was a chat up line, was in fact the opening to one of the most boring conversations one could ever be subjected to. :( I know. I did that course. And slept through most of it.
