Please consider and choose the most important problem facing your business as a freelancer. I have provided some examples against each
- Out of work.
Out of contract
- Lack of sales prospects
coming close to the end of a contract and no sign of further sales. Little activity from Agents, unable to bid for work as too small, too complex
- Low rates
Low rates/sales are making it uneconomic to continue
The hassles of trying to understand IR35, filling in VAT forms, the duties of running a company.
The burden of taxation (not the form filling or contract reviews- that would be Regulation)
Unable to sell you in effectively, low service levels, restrictive clauses.
Competition from larger business such as - Intra Company Transfers ICT – Foreign companies bringing in their own employees and/or body shops with Fast Track Visa workers. FTV.
Lack of funds to invest in training, equipment etc
