You'd think their armies of employment lawyers would have seen this coming a mile off...
    So an umbrella would pass that into the Agency in their invoicing and the Agency would pass it onto the end client.

    I suspect, as you surmise, that many companies haven't twigged that.

    My concern is that umbrellas don't properly pass that cost on and instead carry on with the current way of taking the whole lot of the rate quoted to the contractor

        Problem is that we, as the umbrella company get given the Gross Contract Rate, whereby the employment costs must be met before we reach the taxable salary.

        Come April the requirement for the agencies to provide the Key Information Documents (KIDs) to all contractors before signing any contractual arrangement, I guess is HMRCs way of showing the transparency. Whether that gives any clout for increased rates who knows. My guess is the only arguement will come if the contractor is prepared to fight the IR35 determination.

          The thing being missed here though is most 'inside' roles are advertised on an umbrella basis, which doesn't have the same stipulation. I've yet to come across a client who will accept a true inside IR35 engagement type.

            If anyone does get caught like this, they should consider taking the umbrella to court. That's because the umbrella is supposed to bill the agency (and indirectly the client) at a rate that covers the NICs/Levy overhead, so it never goes near the worker's income. the worker s onluy liable for PAYE and EeNICs, even after next April.

            If you're offered a new contract that represents a drop in income to cover the client's costs then you should have an interesting discussion...

            As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding; like the Roman, I seem to see "the River Tiber foaming with much blood."

              As ComplianceLady said though - if advertised on an umbrella basis then it doesn't apply. Only if they offer inside IR35 with PAYE to the Ltd company.

                This is in-situ transitioning from ltd to Umbrella

                  Transferring to umbrella means IR35 does not apply so the provisions of adding ERNIC on top of the rate do not apply. It is legal (and normal) to take ERNIC from the overall umbrella 'assignment rate'.

                  The only time you can't do this is inside IR35 - which is ONLY when PAYE is processed for funds paid via the PSC.

                    Yes exactly the overall assignment rate which I’m expecting to be my current day rate PLUS what’s needed to take care of ERNIC and Levey

                      That is a commercial negotiation though. Whereas if you were still paid limited but inside the client could only terminate your contract and offer a new one on a lower rate, they couldn't simply deduct from the rate.
