    Jeez, guys lay off him, the usual characters on here being high and mighty again.

    but to the OP, seriously do not pretend to be outside of IR35 at GSK at the moment, it really is too risky and you will be top of the list of people to investigate by HMRC. I know the financial hit of IR35 hurts, but its cheaper than a retrospective tax investigation, plus penalties

    So I go for troll. In fact, having seen another post on here from someone in a style I very much recognise from Another Place, I think we could be in for more.

    Apols HelpNeededetc if you're genuine...
    is Another Place still going? I left.

    Thanks for coming to my defence, I appreciate I do not have much knowledge but that is precisely why I came here.

    So your £500 a day becomes £250 a day with no travel expenses (or any other claimable expenses) - I would have continued as normal

    Hello All
    My current gig (not GSK) where I have been for 6 months was ending at end of month, but client have offered to extend me by another month.
    This would mean I would finish up end of Oct not Sep now.


    I am thinking about keeping my head down here and rejecting the GSK gig

    Any thoughts please

    Take it. Its likely it will be another month and another and so on so could quite easily last longer than the GSK one at a fraction of the risk.

    Only need another month or two inside and you'll come close to earning the same as the GSK one via brolly.

    In general though. I don't think you should be so desperate for the GSK gig. It's a bit quiet now but there is still work out there. New client wants you, other gigs are available so why you've put so much sweat in to something you shouldn't even be considering is beyond me.

    Did you actually get offered the GSK one? Because it's been a full week now you've been fannying about over it. Just saying.
    If you don't have anything nice to say, say it sarcastically

    This one is up to you. You need to square your shoulders and make this decision on your own. This isn't Life by Committee.

    That said, for my part, I would take GSK. Six months. New name. CV will look commensurately better for it.

    Good luck.

    Degree of hyperbole in the numbers?

    A company charging £500 a day for the services of its employee, for say 230 days creates a turnover of £115,000.

    It pays say £12,000 in salary. It pays say £2,000 in expenses (very much limited these days and I would say that expenses at this level even will attract enquiry). It has other costs of say £5,000. (Incl Em'er NIC on salary).

    Net profit £96,000.

    CT @ 18% = £17,280.

    Distributable profit = £78,720.

    Dividend paid -= £78,720.

    Gross cash to director/employee = £12,000 + £78,720 + £2,000 = £92,720. Per tax per diem = £403 and change.

    Tax and NIC bill is £17,000 (give or take).

    Net of tax day rate = £403 - £73 = £330.



    As an employee, gross "salary" is £113,000 (day rate less expenses which would not change much but are still high).

    Tax and em'ee NIC is around £41,900.

    Net to employee per day is £113,000 + £2,000 - £41,900 = £317.
