"Contractors pay way, way less tax than anyone else doing equivalent work."

Get fucked you numpty, what do you know about it?

A permie doing my job would pay about £24k/year in tax. I pay over £30k/year (that's including the benefit of paying myself a basic salary to lower my NIC).

If I go permie, HMRC loses £6k+ a year in tax receipts - how does that calculate as an increase in any way, shape or form?
