    WHS

    I've been on sites where virtually every contractor I talked to through the same agency had negotiated slightly different terms.

    There were things in the upper contract that should have been incorporated, but it was up to the contractor to demand they were put in in full. Whether they were or not depended on whether the contractor got the contract reviewed and who reviewed the contract.

    The contract has an 'audit' clause that seems to mean that my Ltd can be audited to make sure it is doing what they want it to tax wise.
    It's wrong on many levels, but bills have to be paid and it's local.
    What about the clients tax affairs? Are their directors on the dodgy dealings leaked list? Do they have a record of (IR35 friendly) non or late payments to contractors?
    I hate this feeling of persecution that pervades these days.
    I suppose an alternative is to just continue as if outside of IR35 and keep a stash in case the mafia come calling! I don't know how the NI etc would be taken from an inside IR35 contract, do I do it or does the client remove it at source?

    Do you think any agency gives a monkey's chuff what you, me, or anyone else thinks? Legal issues? Something to do with where the sun doesn't shine springs to mind...

    I think this is going to happen more and more. Crap legislation, scaremongering etc.

    You get clients who get scared and get the wrong end of the stick. Then you've got agencies who, as always, are just plain stupid. This is what happens.

    Until they start to see that contractors are knocking back stuff like this then it'll continue unfortunately. I'm betting a lot will still take things like this.

    One thing though - and I know this has been done to death. If they're trying to add opted out as a contract term surely this is illegal? Pity we haven't really got someone who can smack their arses for doing things like this - that would help.

    So latest update.
    After a week People Source came back to me to say they have advised the client to change the contract terms and would like to bring me back.
    Unlucky for them I've just managed to get another contract.
    I'm guessing they are struggling for find any contractors willing to work within their contract terms

    And that's the way they'll learn.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Well done for telling them to do one, I for one will be avoiding any roles adertised by this outfit, waste of my time if at the end of the interview process they bang over a swiss cheese contract like that
