    If being in IR35 becomes the new norm in the private sector it will kill contracting being a mobile resource, especially at the lower end of the rate scale.

    Depends if inside public sector, where its taxpayers money’s and people can get 35% if private sector the answer will be ZERO as client will be able to pick and choose people by the dozen willing to work inside IR35 for same rate, unless you are in that magical 1% that they can’t find the skill for

If enough people start that process the clients will soon look for a better solution.

    What we ought to be doing is teaching clients that the 2020 changes do not mean they have to put everyone inside IR35 out of fear of the taxman, but recruit their contractors on a proper B2B basis so there is no place for IR35 to apply. If they do realise that the world will keep on turning.

    It's that education that is missing. The agencies are holding seminars left, right and centre - and, naturally enough, selling the wrong answer to protect their own business model.
    Oh indeed, I do completely agree with all of the above.

    I have tried with my agency ref Private Sector IR35 next year, and there is nothing going on and seemingly no one to speak to about it, much less educate.

    Mine is just a supposing of what the reality might, in all likelihood, be.

    Agreed. Because you can't claim expenses if they are significant it makes more of a difference.

    But, to answer your question directly, probably 30-35%.
    What a load of tosh.....

    Well in April 2017 my PS client thought that and all the contractors left leaving them right up the creek.

    They weren't happy but had to hike rates by 35%.

    OK. Maybe easier with PS money to do this but I'd argue that private companies are going to have no choice either.

    Not when they can get offshore resources to come onshore for under current contractor rates now

    But you in the public sector will still soon have major competition as the cream from the private sector look to move over and replace to maintain there rates
