    or use this: IR35 Calculator - How much does IR35 Cost you?

    for umbrella you might have to factor another 25-30£ pw in administration fees, apprenticeships levy, and holidays taken out than repaid when taken(not all accessible upfront.)

    I'll mention one scenario only, you have a 1y contact, don't want to pay 30-40% premium for airbnb so take a 6m-12m apartment lease. Get booted 2m in the contract because of budget or manager doesn't like the colour of your shoes. Try to factor this one into the costs.

    Take time off, look outside UK. It is not about the money and that is a lesson you learn chasing the first few roles and end up in the wrong place.

    Many other countries have IR35-like legislation, although implemented in a far better way than in the UK.

    2. Is there any insurance out there to protect my client and I if we jointly agree to stay outside IR35. My contract and working practices are outside But e.g. If hmrc arbitraly decide the contract is inside IR35. I already have IPSE but this would not cover any liability for the client. Is there any insurance I could suggest to my client around this please?

    3 in the unlikely event of going perm I reckon I'd be looking at 30% on top of my current day rate - does that sound OK? I don't really see perm as an option though having been a professional contractor for 13 years now

    Thanks for any input

    There is insurance my current gig who have around 200 contractors has partnered with a firm to offer just this for outside IR35, contractor will pay around £150 to towards this cost, personally think this is the way forward for contracting, just like our own IR35 insurance most contractors have had for years.

    Let's face it, the reason many of us, our parents or ancestors came to the UK was for better quality and more diverse working options.

    If we're stuck with no expenses and paying much higher taxes without the equivalent quality of living (ie: public services, standard of living) then it still makes sense for those able to move to look at Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands and further afield.

    For example in another thread over the weekend someone asked queries about Sweden: yes, higher tax - although not as high as Norway - but higher quality of living than the UK and, depending on what you value doing with your spare time, accessible outdoors and diverse hobby options. If your sole focus is beer then yes, Sweden is more expensive for that, but I'd also suggest you're a bit of a dullard if that's your sole hobby ;-)

    Really? He is working via a UK limited company in Ireland and the Irish taxman hasn't caught him yet. Give them time.

    Not sure if he has UK company or Irish but he is confident he is not affected by this IR35 changes.

    If he has an Irish Company as is working in Ireland, then he's not under UK jurisdiction when it comes to tax laws.
