    Default Anyone thinking rates will go up

    Does anyone thing rates will go up or people will be so desperate for work they will take the hit of the new IR35 honesty box scheme.

    Clients getting same work done so not much reason to pay more so rates stay same.

    Crap loads of contractors desperate for outside gigs willing to snap your arm off so rates go down.

    Increase the rates.. Nope, can't think of a single reason that might happen. Why do you think it might?

    Ohh you mean clients up the rate for an inside IR35 gig which means you'll likely still come out with less. Is that what you mean. You see the problem there don't you.

    Even if there is an increase in rates for outside gigs there will be so few around it won't really be much of a gauge of anything.

    You did see where posted this didn't you?

    Keep an eye out for public sector outside gigs - could be good rates to be had there while private sector adjusts.

    But they've been around for years and there isn't many of them. They also very strongly favour people with PS experience.

    I don't think this is the golden goose it appears to be.

    There's a few on DOS4 but not huge volumes of work. The gigs I'm interested in always turn up at the wrong time.

    On the recent webinar many people were asking how often new suppliers get work vs those who have received contracts in the past. No idea if they will do the analysis, it would make for interesting reading.

    Unemployment rate is at a historical low. There's only one direction for it now to go, unless somehow recession is avoided.

    History tells us when unemployment rates rise income rates tank. Indeed a double whammy is often observed as food prices increase at the same time.

    Prepare yourself.

    So what you are saying is you haven't got a clue? They could go up down or stay the same?
