    As for my view point - it's up to you but it may be worth finding somewhere to sit for a year or 2 while the dust settles down...
    I'm the complete opposite .... big changes like Brexit trigger projects. Projects need contractors. I'm happy to be one of those contractors Permie jobs where I work go for less than half the day rate for a similar contract role - even inside IR35 you'd be quids in going contract. Yes, there are some benefits of perm but are these of interest to contractors?

    But the OP is not talking about a contract paying twice the perm rate he's talking about £110k (£125k package) versus £600 a day (say £132k as a contractor) and he hasn't got the child benefit trap at £50k to contend with. So in that case is he really quids in keeping contracting?

    That's the question I'm wrestling with.
    Unless one is 100% against ever being a permie, there is a grey area where even the most resistant would consider it. The range of responses on here show my offer is the start of a grey area. If the package was 150k, I guess those responses would be a lot more pro permie.

    Anyway, thanks all for the replies, good food for thought.

    Depending on your age if it's a large company with opportunity to make MD in a few years I'd give it a go and see how you get on. If in a couple of years things aren't working out, you then have the option to either go back contracting or jump up the permie ladder somewhere else.

    I've been contracting my whole life but if I'd have gone perm 20 years ago the truth is I'd have retired by now. I couldn't be doing with all the permie though.

    I'd think not - take the permie money now, see what the market looks like after IR35 changes get rolled out everywhere (and avoid the rush to permie if everyone is making that move in 2020).

    Looks a no brainer to me

    If you don't mind, can you let us know what technology you are working on for getting such a high rate?
