    Default Survey on the impact of public sector IR35

    If you've worked in public sector in the past two years, via a limited company or LLP, please consider completing the survey on the impact on your business that can be found here.

    The more people who speak up about the impact on their business, the more ammunition we all have to fight any further changes.

    Hmm. I had a go and got to about 50% but it's not very straight forward for my situation. One client just before and one after. The questions seem to lean to those that were at the same client over the change. Asking about how it changed the gig which I don't know. I'll have another stab at it tomorrow.

    It might be worth broadening this out.

    You must have worked on a public sector contract in the last two years and operate via a limited company or limited liability partnership to qualify for this survey.
    One of the issues with being caught is that it probably doesn't make sense to operate via a Ltd., so many won't.

    Sorry I started a new thread on this.....

    Idiotic to exclude umbrella. If you move to a PS Inside IR35 gig far and away the easiest way to proceed is via umbrella. Having an existing ltd, I looked into this in detail and in the end it just was not worth the hassle and cost of doing it this way. Better to just put the ltd on hold for this gig....

    So, IR35 made me change my way of working. But I'm excluded from the survey. Nuts.

    Pretty sure there are going to be a lot of people like me.

    I wonder if that's really the intention though. It might just be a poor choice of wording in the preamble...

    TF?

    Indeed. I too have put my Ltd on hold while using a brolly for PS IR35 contract.

    Though I am not bothered at all about AIPSE and their survey. I have about as much faith in them accomplishing anything regarding this as praying to the tooth fairy to pay me in bitcoins.

    Besides I'm a tinfoil hatter in that any data showing contractors that have changed behaviour due to recent changes to PS and IR35 will be seen as an easy target by HMRC for IR35 investigations.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    PC. Don't you answer question 1 as 'Employed by someone else' and the survey ends?

    If you go through the first question and select umbrella it stops there.
