THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MY RESEARCH AND CONSULTANCY. Back to home page

 

Research.

 

My research contracts typically last for 2-3 years and if I am awarded a research contract I recruit a researcher to one of the different types of research posts to do most of the work. I do not normally charge for my own time as supervisor (this is covered by the overhead). The work is generally of a more long-term nature with publishable results and, as such, is not normally liable for vat.

 

 

Consultancy.

 

Consultancy work is normally short-term investigations that I carry out myself at a cost of 700 - 1000 per day to the client. The results would be confidential to the client and vat would be payable.
