    4. Do more work via Upwork/Guru if I can bag them and keep them.
    5. Expand and update skills/knowledge to get better rates and offers, once the UK contracting market returns. Or not. Then do more work for clients in EMEA.

    Fingers crossed...
    I'm knackered just reading that.
    think i'll have a lie down.

    If you suggest that's crazy, I am inclined to agree. Watch this space. See Financial Times/Telegraph for more info. I prefer to avoid the Telegraph as it's a brexit rag and seems prone to business misinformation these days.
    I wasn't aware. Thanks for sharing.

    That would be crazy, you'd think gov would be keen to encourage people to put as much into personal pensions as possible, not like the state pension is going to save us all!

    Sweden allows outside contacts and these are extremely common in IT.

    Is that right?

    Contracting in Sweden: the legal bit

    In the first instance, it’s important to note that the country has strict deemed employment legislation which makes many Swedish firms reluctant to employ contractors under a self-employed model. Much of this reluctance comes from the increased risks for the business, with tax liabilities transferred to the end client if incorrect payments are made. Many firms will also find that tax administration is particularly burdensome if a self-employed contractor is deemed to be a permanent fixture, making this employment model unfavourable with a large number of companies.
