I think that would be the form...

Category for doctors-in-training after foundation?

Which category would that fall under - 1 or 2? A doctor-in-training who was on the Postgraduate Doctor and Dentist Visa for the Foundation Programme and has been given a place for further training in a speciality?

Thank you.

Does this guidance apply to for those through Umbrellas? That is aimed at those who operate through an umbrella company, I think. The net income will be expense minus i.e suppose you earn 100 pounds and make an expense of 30 pounds now your taxable income will be 100-30=70 . On 70 pounds you will p...

As Idea suggested, there are calculators available that will help you calculate the exact amount you can get after deductions, but it is significantly less after deductions.

Which are the better newspapers for job advertisements?

Thought it might be worthwhile to buy newspapers regularly for the classifieds. Which are typically the better ones for job advertisements e.g. the ones with more advertisements or which attract advertisements from the larger companies?

Or should I not bother with newspapers at all?

Thank you.

The quantity of documents listed on http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/MoneyTaxAndBenefits/BenefitsTAxCreditsAndOtherSupport/BeginnersGuideToBenefits/DG_10014073 for proof of identity is rather subjective.

Annoying, isn't it? I get that too from some agents.

Trouble is, some may have genuine vacancies despite being hardwired to fish. I once refused to disclose those details to an agency which subsequently arranged to send me to a company I had already been sent to by another agency. It got messy.
