Hi all

After lurking for a while, though I would say a quick hello and thank you for all the informative posts.

Just about to leave my first contract where I have used an umbrella and considering going ltd for the next gig because I have had several issues with my expenses being allocated incorrectly.

Following the advice of the longstanding on here, I am about to start calling accountants to see how I feel. It is still such a minefield and I am still very new at this, but I guess I know a lot more than I did 3 months ago!!
