    Been forced into PAYE will mean the client has the upper hand I know that I would be lucky to get £45k but I cant imagine that they will want the liability of paying for them expenses themselves. They would set my employee contract to been based in the office and so any expenses incurred in getting there would be my own. I cant imagine them setting my contract up as WFH so I can claim the expenses.

    Sure that there will be many more affected by this
    If (when) it comes in, it's going to cause havoc. Unless my contract is deemed outside IR35 I'll be off. There's going to be one hell of a contractor merry go round when this hits the fan. So when this clueless kn0b jockey screws it up he'll be safe in the knowledge that he's cost the Tories tens of thousands of votes. And this from the guy who was criticising brown when IR35 was brought in because of it's effects on the smallest businesses in the UK.
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    Looking at the crap HMRC have landed themselves in in the last few weeks/months I wouldn't be overly worried at the moment.
