Re: Dangers of moving from outside to inside IR35

"Seems pretty dumb."

We're talking about management of large businesses here so are you surprised?

The contractors are being taken on by people working at the sharp end. The decision is made by people .... let's say not so sharp.

What's likely to happen is that either by April the word will have got back that those contractors are going to have to be kept on or, if internal communications are slower, sometime after April the word will get back that they're going to have to be got back.

As the article says clients are going to have to work out how to ensure the conditions are kept clearly outside IR35, something they should have been doing all along.
