    Brilliant.

    Same here. Was on a high salary but being controlled by idiots.
    I take home a similar amount (a little more if I want to but not always), but am happier, have more freedom, and am NOT under direction and control.

    You called this idiot out brilliantly. He's the reason why I won't go perm again no matter how much tax I have to pay.

    This may be a naïve question, but what's to stop Fiisch Contracting Ltd. setting up a HQ in the Isle of Man, ala larger corporations adept at tax avoidance?

    Poor Matt88 sounds like he's had enough of being out-earned by the contractors he sits next to....
    I agree, if he worked harder, studied and pass a few exams, then he might be remunerated better. However he will have to get that chip off his shoulder first!

    To be fair it wouldn’t be the first time that something’s leaked to the press ahead of the budget to get everyone in a frenzy before they actually announce something bad but not “quite as bad” in an effort to stop folk moaning!

    Is your accountant in the know, or is that just a guess?

    Time for those who haven't done so already to cancel IPSE membership, this club of idiots has proven to be completely useless.

    Haven't they become advocates for benefits for contractors who are caught inside? I thought they'd pretty much abandoned trying to get IR35 overturned.

    That said, will the likes of IPSE and QDos be changing their IR35 insurance offerings if the private sector roll-out goes ahead?

    That probably means April 2020 rather than 2019 for the implementation.
