  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Contractors United will never be Shafted!

  2. IR35 - Back to first principles....

    Reading the discussion document again (its too hot outside and unless I do it now I'll only have to do it later) I'm struck by a simple question.... What do all the parties actually want from the issue / IR35 marketplace? HMRC - want as many people as possible paid by PAYE especially those...

  6. Not keen on CIOT's IR35 consultation suggestion Sounds to me like it's still giving the client an ongoing obligation to judge whether contractors are inside or outside. So there's still the issue of clients judging...

  10. Charlie and Thomas -- Another Nice Example from HMRC

    The HMRC Consultation on IR35 includes another example of HMRC's one-sided "analysis." On page nine, Charlie and Thomas are compared. I'll assume you all can read it, I won't give the details. After the infamous Ben/Jo case study of 2015, I don't trust them anymore, so I decided to run some...

  16. Specialist roles outside IR35

    Hi and happy new year all, Just wanted to check my understanding. I am a very niche contractor, there are maybe 100 guys in the UK with my skills. This automatically places me outside of IR35, right? I am considering a long gig in UK (maybe up to 2 years work). Thanks and may the...

  20. How many contractors does it need to be a business rather than a PSC?

    Both myself and my wife contract through the same Limited company, and have done for +10 years. While most of her contracts have been through agencies, mine are usually direct. Her current contract is with the Public Sector, thru an agency - so there is concern that they'll from April pay her...
