    At my central European client, they had a lot of contractors from Romania on a fairly low rate (70% of my rate).

    First time I did a week remote, my pimp's accountant contacted me to tell me my i didn't adjust my invoice for this (timesheet onsite / remote days were listed separate).

    After speaking with my pimp, I found out my rate was the same but the Romanian guys rates were reduced by 50% for remote work. A bit of a p-take by the client / pimp.

    One Romanian worked a full 50% of his time offsite despite having a full-time apartment in town.

    I think you've misunderstood what was meant when someone mentioned you and 'biggest knob on the forums' in the same post.

    I've been working mostly for the same pimp for going on 12 years. I count him among my friends - we tend to get together and hang out whenever we are one or two countries away from each other.

    From time to time, little surprises come up between what he agreed with the client and what I agreed with him.

    I don't get all excited about it as he's always made adjustments on the current contract or the next one. After 30 years of contracting you mellow out a bit.

    Why not? Just consider it a remote contract and you are charging extra when on site.
