    First, you need to ignore HMRC guidance and look at the case law. For the same reason, you need to ignore CEST.

    Second, it’s about the right of control.

    Third, the “how” element of control is...

    I don't think you're any more likely to be screwed than through an agency, certainly less on the margin. :D

    The thing you have to watch for is payment terms. They are typically longer, and you do...

    Sounds to me like you have a vested interested in a particular outcome - you want a Trump win.

    It isn't looking very likely, tbh. The polls could be wrong, but they're generally pretty good in the...

    If you're working through an umbrella, then IR35 is irrelevant, so your post is kinda confusing.

    Yep, £500 is pretty common, I think.

    Within reason, accuracy and consistency are more important than the precise amount (i.e., being able to explain what you did and why).
