    Not being funny but usually moaning and whining about things like this usually lead to a much more flexible daily agenda including jeremy kyle, cracking one off, then watching loose women (i.e. given the boot from contract).
    Well yes they should be able to work where they please just like any other business in partnership with any other business. It's a business contract to complete a project. Perm are told what they can and can't do. Contractors are given projects and left to it with milestones to prove they are doing the work and to spec. It's idiots like you who HMRC would love to check your IR35 contract

    Im fine thank you. In an ideal world yes but not all client are like this. Contractors who kick off and moan give everyone else a bad name.

    So client takes you on for a project based in x location. There may be no remote access. Client may actually need you to speak to and interact with people at location x. You moan and say you're working from home = end of gig sharpish.

    Nah. Not at all. It depends on the work and what is being delivered. Most of the work we do requires interaction that is difficult to do completely remotely. Many suppliers place people on site so saying they can work where they please is complete rubbish.

    There is professional courtesy as well. Just waltzing in when you feel like and no one not knowing where you are just isn't normal and is going to frustrate people.

    Whoever has hacked PC's account does have a point.

    PC is also inside IR35 anyway so that point isn't going phase him either.
