    Ah ok, I was thinking of the scenario where consultancies take on contractors for short term resource rather than to convert them to permie, or where contractors are being offered the option of working via a consultancy as a way for the client (I think it's at least one bank, detailed elsewhere on this forum) to address the upcoming IR35 changes.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    This does happen. I’ve contracted via my Ltd for one of the Big 4.

    What a surprise, my own Ltd Consultancy also has several clients and has an employee consultant who is a PAYE ( which happens to be me)

    It's quoted here:

    Queen’s Speech: pensions, employment and airline insolvency changes | Accountancy Daily

    But I don't know if this is chicken or egg.

    Probably chicken as I see that the accountancy article was published a day after the original link above.

    Hold on. Not a grain of truth in it. Written by Gerry so not at all surprising.

    Read the Queen's Speech properly and you will ot find anything to justify this article.
    Blog? What blog...?

    Sorry guys but I've got some bad news.

    The text reported on the dodgy site originally linked to was not in the Queen's speech as she originally delivered it, nor was it in the transcript.

    However it IS in the background briefing, on page 66.

    "We will increase fairness and flexibility in the labour market by stopping employers and workers experiencing significantly different outcomes from flexible forms of working"

    PDF source: https://assets.publishing.service.go...Pack_2019_.pdf

    It's game over, man, game over IMHO.

    Very hard to know what that really means. But from the context of the section, it sounds very much like the potential aim of any possible bill would be to protect workers from unscrupulous employers. I’d guess this is trying to stop “gig economy” workers from being utterly screwed by Uber, Deliveroo etc. I’m not seeing anything here that scares the crap out of me. Could be wrong of course!
