    Who to ask about IR35 status

    Given a contract chain that looks like this:
    My company->Agency->Consulting firm->End-client

    End-client is a sizeable international charity, turnover definitely >£10m. Apart from core security...

    What about the tactic of getting a working practices questionnaire (I'm thinking of Qdos' one) freshly signed by the end-client close to Dec 2019?

    This seems like a reasonable litmus test for the...

    Do you know of anywhere this process is described in more detail? Presumably I can then withdraw the 'new' dividends from the foreign company and not fall foul of this (rather draconian) 5 year limit?

    Very helpful, thanks.

    Again, at the risk of over-simplifying, would the dividends then likely be taxable at such a rate that it would make little difference whether one had stayed or gone?
  6. Moving away from the UK, withdrawing dividends and closing company

    Given reasonably large funds in ltd company (£150k+).

    Given no pressing need to take additional dividends this tax year.

    If one moves to another country with much lower (and non-banded)...

    The 'can't stop no deal' BS is pure Cummings spin, trying to cow the rebels into thinking all is lost.

  11. Remote contract with a few days now and then on site in Switzerland
