    One of the problems here is that it is totally implausible to suggest that you are running a business testing a gambling application by actually betting.

    HMRC will simply assume you're gambling.

    I see so obviously if they arrive on tourist visas they'll have to go back after 3 months.

    and in any case they'll be sent back when they enter begging as a reason for the visit.

    To opt in means you are under the control of the client which is one of the indicators of employment. So ok being opted in doesn't necessarily mean you are inside IR35 but it isn't helpful.

    Since a lot of them come from Albania which isn't in the EU, why would leaving the EU make any difference ?

    Millions of visitors from outside the EU come to the UK every year.

    That photo wasn't even taken in the UK.

    So looks like you left for the wrong reason. :D

    Britain also has beggars.

    The biggest problem in building a great system is how to market it. Alone it will probably go nowhere, you need a "sponsor" or at the very least a few eager customers. If there are no eager customers...

    The ideal answer is yes because they will know they have competition, but don't give them the details otherwise they'll pinch your contracts.

    That's not how it works, they won't chase the Dutch tax authorities they'll come after you. You'll have to submit your income, taxed in the Netherlands as part of your tax return. That is the point...

    Congratulations, I wasn't involved as I don't live in the UK so it doesn't affect me, but I found the whole thing most entertaining.

    Never cease to comment on it though, when it turns up in the discussion. The problem is that you don't realise you're obsessed because it's so ingrained in the discussion.

    :D

    Presumably you were celebrating the Brexiteers getting their peerages today and obsessing about the balance of Brexiteers to "Remoaners" in the house of Lords.

    Perhaps the Brexiteers could start by disbanding the Brexit party to at least give an impression they're not obsessed with Brexit

    That has absolutely nothing to do with Brexit though.

    I wonder how easily you could start a debate about the Palestinians in Israel.

    This is a free country you can express your views. If you get a barage of emotional arguments back, that's how it is. I don't understand how having started a divisive emotional debate i.e. Brexit...

    It makes sense if students are overwhelmingly anti-Brexit and pay you extortionate fees that you might not necessarily want to upset them.

    P*ssing off your customers is never good for business.

    That's because most Professors are anti-Brexit 87% feel free to express their view, 73% of the Brexiteer professors aren't afraid to express their view either.

    You need to be a bit careful if you are working in the UK and you're being taxed overseas. You will be declaring this in the UK whilst you're still there. If you work remotely in the UK for a foreign...

    Simple the title



    Leftwing academics are not expressing their views but rightwing academics are "forced" by the nasty leftwing academics.

    This is just a rightwing whining article.

    He's obviously going to sit and sulk in the White House if he loses; there will clearly be no congratulatory phone call. The legal process will be entertaining.

    Good stuff :popcorn:

    He wants to get rid of the postal vote, but I don't think it would make any difference even if he could.

    Delay the US election

    So looks like Donald wants to delay the election.

    Things need to be back to normal otherwise the election will be "unfair".

    Indeed though it should be in the contract. However I suppose if the OP simply includes his mileage and expenses on the invoice there should be no problem and he wouldn't be out of pocket because...

    Sounds better than Accenture who also man their projects with graduates straight out of Uni and charge eye-watering rates.

    Yes it is tax fraud because expenses are not classified as income. Good maybe they are doing it, but it very dubious.

    A company claiming travelling expenses which they don't incur is fraud. The travelling expenses need to be passed on to the contractor.

    I think this request should be refused. If they want to pay...

    I would say you should be paying tax in the UK and in the country you work remotely. Sounds increasingly like you need two companies. Your UK Ltd and a foreign company. I had a split contract once...

    Is InfoSys any worse or better than any other company. Probably not, the reviews I've seen are OK.

    Yes I understand that, but whether they use Infosys or OrdinaryPreferredAgency makes no difference. Companies have always used a reduced list if suppliers to reduce their paperwork. This has been...

    If a client wants to simply go through InfoySys they could have done that without the IR35 change. It's just nonsense to suggest it's too much effort to do due diligence when you can simply declare...

    If contractors are refusing permie positions then it demonstrates that the market is bouyant, because they can get better rates elsewhere.

    In this case you would bill the UK Ltd from your foreign company.

    The fact is that contractors on PAYE pose no risk to the company, so there must be other reasons.

    How?, they can simply make sure contractors are on PAYE.

    I doubt very much any company will switch to Infosys to save a 10 minute check by the purchasing dept that a contractor is on PAYE.

    IR35 doesn't remove contractors from the market, they just pay more tax. It has no impact for Infosys.

    I mean if the agency were to refuse to allow you to bill from a foreign company, but that makes it complicated. In that case you would bill via the UK ltd, and then bill the UK Ltd from your foreign...

    Yes you should bill from a company registered in the country you're working in.
