Re: Not really...

Not even close. I work on projects with companies, when the project ends I leave. My contracts have always been IR35 compliant, I'm legitimately Outside, but my current client has ruled Inside. As has almost every other company I could contract with. HMRC have made statements that make it clear they will launch investigations going back up to 6 years if they see contracts going from deemed Outside to Inside. Which is almost all of them, regardless of the reality. So, stay and get investigated by HMRC for the last 6 years, or leave and find something else. Not a hard choice, I don't need that sort of stress, I'm walking, and so apparently are 72% of my fellow contractors. I know of some that have already accepted contracts outside of the country, others are seriously looking into doing the same.
