Don't worry Smid this is more on topic than most of the stuff we

As an unemployed contractor ;-) I'll spill my thoughts on the tax

IR35 takes away the advantage of self employment for contractors but
doesn't give them the security of employees.  If someones contract means
they need to pay tax under IR35 rules then they should automatically
become entitled to more employment benefits.

This is why I don't want to do any contracting this time around and am
starting up on my own.
