I am so confused about off-payroll working that I now have a headache. This question has probably been asked many times before but I have completed so much searching.
I am self-employed and there is no-one else working with of for me. I am currently engaged with a limited company over 4 days which may increase to 5 and charge a daily rate. I have other clients that I complete work for and this is done in the hours I am not at the big client.
All work undertaken is done on a mutually agreed basis.
They have suggested that I now become an employee and go on their payroll. This will result is a significant loss in income.
Do I have to take their employment to work 5 days or can I continue as a contractor with the ICB letter of engagement covering the terms by which I work?
