Limited = August to January @ 6 monthsI am not looking to increase my earnings, but based on a limited company contract assignment, would I need to increase my six month fee of £75,000 to offset IR35 tax rules?Appreciate your advice.Thanks

You cannot simply just change to a contractor there are strict guidelines as to what is permissable not just within IR35 but also employment legisaltion

How will your services differ in the way they are provided from employment as it is now and will be

And why are you going limited you then pay your tax and National Insurance as well as the employers antional insurance have to file returns with companies HOuse and HMRC and then aslo complete your won self assessewtn so its far more expnesive with costs to whomever will take care of your admin

Plus is many cases the use of these persona service compnaies d fall fowl of the IR35 - as HMRC look and consider where it not for the limited company would this individual in fact be en employee

Perhaps you could advise further and comment on the above
