    Are they skimming you or the client ?

    If you had negotiated directly with the client they would have given you the rate you asked for and you would be happy. The fact that an agency paid the rate...

    No-one is forcing the UK to hand over fishing rights. The UK is grovelling for a deal with the EU and therefore the EU are demanding fishing rights because they can.

    It's less hassle for a client to deal with one or two agencies than 30 or 40 seperate contractors. If you go direct what's in it for the client?
    The client will expect a significant discount and...

    That's a decision by the UK government not the EU if Brits can't vote in the UK.

    So in effect the same amount of red tape but different from EU regulations, so that UK manufacturers need to produce two sets of labels, each equally complex.

    It all depends on whether Boris decides to cave. He's in a corner so I suspect he might not. The fishermen will get sold out at the drop of a hat, the problem is the "level playing field".

    It has always been the case that Brits didn't have a vote in national elections even before the UK left the EU. The best you can expect is a decision to allow Brits to take part in local elections as...

    There are only legal consequences if not enough tax was paid i.e. contractors deemed outside are actually inside, so a blanket decision to put all contractors inside IR35 is the easiest option.

    Are you working in Spain or the UK?

    Your UK accountant is correct if you commute and work in the UK. If you work remotely you should register as self-employed in Spain.

    The fact that air freight is down is a Brexit problem, because it has been pushed on to the Eurasia rail system. That means even more imports coming from Europe.

    There's no prejudice against banking experience. They only look at how relevant your skills are to their sector. If someone has more sector experience they're going to get the contract.

    It's up to the UK to enforce the EU rules in British waters. In effect what you're saying is the UK isn't abiding by the rules.

    It's not the EU which assigns domain names. It would be a bit silly to define geographically based domain names and then allow them to be assigned in completely different regions.
