HMRC need to sort their ***in act out.
The VAST majority of "contractors" have always been within ir35
I am a contractor because I hate working for the same company for years.
I am generally project resource on IT projects, migrations and roll outs occasional BAU and backfill stuff. It would be soul destroying to sit in the same chair doing the same shit for the rest of my life?
it makes me suicidal
vSphere is vSphere no matter what chair I sit in, but changing that chair makes it bearable.
My working like is long and hard; why the fuck SHOULD I make it worse by sitting in the same office for the rest of my life.
If the entire tax system was not set up to allow the rich to stay rich then we would have the ability to have a far more simple system, set up for people like me.
In fact, the average IT contractor is the same as the average Deliveroo cycle rider dropping off McDonald's, but politicians are also limited companies?
We should NOT be limited companies, but have some other classification which has 5% of the required paperwork.
But by putting this in place, I assume that many senior figures would have their financial systems effectively ripped apart and make it obvious how they are hiding their money.
HMRC not putting simpler systems in place is just proof that the system is a protection for a certain strata rather than a usable system.
Nowadays I am generally paid the same as the full time staff except I won’t get any of the advantages they have (sick pay etc.) I am forced to "opt out" of all of these legal advantages before any agency will give me a job anyway.
Even when I work for .Govt and they come to me directly I am forced to go through their agency of choice where I am told I need to opt out with my own volition!.
