From the workers point of view as much as possible, from the contractor point of view as little as possible!

CIS is a rip off as usually you have to go through an umbrella company who deduct a fee of 20-30 quid per week for the service. That soon adds up to a lot of money if you do a lot of agency/sub-contracting work. Look up JIB rates as these are probably the best you can negotiate to in many cases.

Googling job adverts gives a guide for agency .

Self-employed phone up some local competition and ask for a 'ball-park' figure for an average job.

Cash-in-hand: generally lower I'd guess as people who want to pay cash want a cheaper job, and I'd avoid them.

Apprentice: Look up JIB rates for a minimum.

At the xmas bash for our 'happy gang' we were horrified how little the plumber paid his excellent guy, legally. The tightwad. Poor guy worked evenings shelf-stacking to make up his money.

[edit] Sounds like you're wanting to take someone on Ampman! For CIS - don't ever miss a monthly return - even if it's £0 [/edit]

End of 2013 I was asked to do 2nd fixing in that London at the rate of £18.00 an hour and when pushed they were allowing £10.00 on an oyster card per day. BUT, deduct 20% tax and is it really worth it?

IE; 40 hrs x £18.00 ='s £720.00 less 20% tax ='s £576.00 also allow for another tenner a day travel expenses so thats £50.00 off coming to £526.00 a week. So, basically £100.00 per day.

You decide!

£18.00 per hour - not per day. I was getting £16.00 an hour some 20 years ago. So, whats the going rate today? BTW, I didnt do the work as I thought its not worth it.
