    Most IT contractors want employment benefits if clobbered with IR35

    We must've done this already but I didn't obviously see it in General? Who here is in IR35 currently?

    Surely you just quit and go permie? Why would you put up with it without employment benefits?

    Negotiate a rate to compensate for it, find a role outside elsewhere.

    Even if you cant do that it's almost worth it just to avoid the permie management and HR bulltulip.

    No problem, just go through a payroll umbrella or get your accountant to sort it out or perhaps talk to the MD of your Ltd company to arrange for paid holiday and benefits.

    At the end of the day you will be paying for your own holidays, one way or the other.

    A bit of non-story really.

    This. All day long.

    Two quotes from the article:
    The Treasury has estimated the tax man will claw back £185m for the year 2017/18 as a result of the changes.
    Followed by:
    Last year The Register revealed that many Whitehall departments advised self-employed techies to increase their fees by 20 per cent.

    That was in response to the serious dearth of tech skills within government – particularly with the challenge of Brexit looming. The National Audit Office has said Whitehall may need to spend £244m on contractors if it is to meet the serious shortfall in skills.
    Anyone else spot the cretinous stupidity in all of this?

    Cos you probably still get paid more? Cos you don't have to do performance reviews? Cos getting rid of an employee is hard work so they still want flexible resources?

    Hard to understand why governments are so ignorant and dim witted at times. IR35 is just one of many examples.

    An agent was telling me earlier this week that some government dept. was looking for 40 big-data engineers, outside London, permie and paying peanuts. Urgently.

    I think we both just rolled our eyes.
