"why wouldn't large corporate companies force all employees into off-payroll umbrella companies, thereby removing a whole pile of employment rights and taxes. "

The assumption is many contracting roles pay well - take a look at logistics as an example of where large companies (ie supermarkets) outsourced warehouses and logistics to third parties who promptly provided staff with new contract roles (yes I'm glossing over some steps but the outcome remains the same).

HMRCs policies have targeted a very small percentage of contractors with the initial IR35 rules and made a dog's breakfast of it while trying to demonstrate it wasn't a mistake by repeatedly making it worse.
