HMRC: We 'rigorously tested' IR35 tax-check tool... but have almost nothing to show for it

Re: Please forgive what may be a silly question...

I dont think that the issue is that it gives different answers to the same input... Though it is in beta and is being changed so its possible you would get different answers from day to day... Hopefully getting more accurate...

The problem as I understand it is more that the answers it gives dont fit in with the current law.

For example, if you take a IR35 investigation which went to court and which HMRC lost and enter the details/work conditions/contractual obligations of the plaintiff into CEST you would expect the outcome to be inline with the finding of the court - this is not the case.
