I figure there are probably a lot of IT contractors here who are affected by this.
I have accidentally discovered that payments made to contractors who work through an agency or recruiter are now (as of 1 April 2017) schedular payments, which means the agent has to deduct tax (20%). (See IR1029)
Are IT contractors here now having tax deducted by their agents, or is it by invoice as it always was?
Has anyone applied for a 0% tax rate?
