    Excellent.

    This is exactly the sort of action all seasoned contractors should be taking if adversely affected by all large clients.

    And in 2-3 months (wild guess), there would be, by necessity, a reversal of client thinking.

    Question is.. Where will they all go? Leave one client with inside determinations to go work at another, who's contractors all left because of determinations?

    All thst will happen is a merry go round as we've said all along.

    Am sure someone can do the maths but I don't work for a month, I lose £10k untaxed. I assume if a business like HSBC, Sky, Barclays don't have that work done, how much do they lose?

    These tax dodgers should pay their fair share.

    They lose nothing, because they cry 'skills shortage' and the UK government will be happy to oblige them with a big pile of visas of various types. Good luck with it all though. Nice to see you've taken back control.

    Sort of. The banks will get in the big consultancies. Who will get visas to get more Indians in.

    Whole project collapses/fails and they get the proper contractors back...this could take some time unfortunately.

    Precisely the same in the energy industry, operators and contracting companies. India > UAE > UK via intracompany transfer visas tends to be the default route. There are many experienced UK guys out of work, or if desperate they are working at multi-dacade low rates as a consequence. Disgraceful.
