    Default Partnerships

    Before beginning, I believe it is the right of everyone to sell their labour as a business. IR35 is an insidious idea born of the Labour Party, competing consultancies, unionised workers/civil servants.

    Companies are now coercing people to lie, and agree to 'inside' when, they are not. Well, no use crying. We are, where we are.

    Have people discussed Partnerships?

    Default More Partnerships...

    As IR35 is making conracting difficult, have people discussed Partnerships?

    I made a post on the Legal Forum - perhaps it should be on this forum(?)

    And what would a partnership solve? - the client has determined the role you have is one similar to an employee so how does a partnership solve that issue

    The partnership would stop the Labour government from being able to make changes.

    ...oh yeah, they've not been in power for a decade, and the current lot have refused to change the policies because it suits them not to.

    It's also worth posting out, the number of people calling themselves "contractors" who only work at 1 client for years - these people are not genuine contractors.

    Yes, most agencies won't work with partnerships so is a non starter
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Have merged both threads and moved them from Accounting/Legal and Future of Contracting into IR35

    Selling your labour as a business is what is called a contract of service. Which is also called a job.

    I did say "born of the Labour Party"

    That said, it is more accurate to say "born of the Labour Party & unionised workers/civil servants and embraced by competing consultancies"

    While conservatives are susceptible to bowing to corporations, as Labour does to unions and foreign powers, Cameron & May did act as continuity Labour.

    A business is where you own your own labour, and sell it as you wish.

    A "job" is where you are an employee of a company, with a boss.

    A business has risk and decides its own direction, which is difficult for some to understand.

    Ah yes, Cameron and May were extreme left wing, and we now have an only mildly left wing government, is that you're take on things?
