Reply to post: gears up for IR35 private sector crackdown – say industry folk


An agency contacted me asking if I was willing to work in Southend for HMRC in Dev Ops, for £600 a day. Problem is that...

* it''d mean working for HMRC

* it'd be inside IR35, so travel and subsistence not deductable

* it'd mean working for HMRC

I quickly said no, and suggested that they would have a hard time finding someone decent for that rate, who wouldn't leave as soon as something better came along. The agent said he'd already had two people say yes and then change their mind!
