    Default PGC - IR35/tax insurance, great advice, netowrking

    Hi,

    Well, this is what their website implies.

    What's the general concensus on joining the PGC. Has anyone joined and got any good/bad experiences or has anyone avoided oining for any particular reason.

    Do they really provide useful info or is most of their material and guides stuff that someone could find themselves on Google?

    For coverage of proper contractor issues, as opposed to the more interesting crappage you get here, try shout99. Proper accountants advising, IR35 insurance and other insurances and services.

    They are worth joining for a number of reasons.

    1. The tax investigation insurance included in the membership fee.
    2. The IR35 friendly model contracts available to members to use for themselves.
    3. Access to free tax and legal advice.

    They have a fair amount of other stuff as well but those are the biggies as far as most people are concerned.

    Free? Shout99's fair35 doesn't cost any more than the PCG membership, includes other investigations as well as IR35, is with QDOS and comes with a big folder of contract pointers and stuff.

    Not arguing over who is better, the OP asked about the PCG so I answered. Never heard of Shout 99 but here is the PCG benifits list for comparason.

    Benefits of standard membership


    Professional Expenses Insurance (PEI) via PCG’s policy which covers all members and pays up to £75,000 per claim to cover professional fees relating to any tax investigation including those on IR35, S660A, PAYE, VAT and other matters

    Free access to tax and legal helplines

    Draft contract templates for agency work and direct client contracts, plus standard terms and conditions template for small projects

    Expert guides to IR35, Section 660A and the Agency Regulations

    Access to a wealth of technical and commercial advice via the forums

    Careful, PAYE audit cover is extra, you need to supersize to get cover for it.....

    Hmmm, that was lifted directly from the PCG website so if what you say is true then there is a problem with what they are telling their customers.

    I treat them as a set of insurance policies with a pressure group attached.
