    So out flexible market place will end up being the detritus of our industry. Well done May/Hammond.
    you think forcing a contractor into a permie job would motivate them?

    Maybe employers will buy IR35 insurance from IPSE or QDOS?

    I very much agree I shouldn’t be paying Employer’s NI but this is the reality of inside IR35 today.

    I get more pay than a permie, but any perks (holiday pay) come from incurred earnings. I can pay into a pension and save some tax. But no employer contribution.

    On the plus side I don’t have performance reviews - but then I miss out on perks like WFH. Basically contractors are here to work on projects and keep head down...

    Overall - the situation suits me OK - for now...
