Unfair IR35 assessment
Advantage Group passed along Initial assessment (using CEST), which was done months before I started by BAE without engagement with role sponsor - deemed Inside - when I started the role. Was told I could Appeal once.
Undertook my own assessment using CEST tool, highlighting on multiple occasions that the answers put on the CEST tool were wrong & that the role was Outside IR35, backing this up with reference to the contract Ts&Cs I had signed up to through Advantage.
Second assessment undertaken by BAE in conjunction with role sponsor, after they confirmed initially assessment was part of batch assessment done before the need for this particular role was even there. Answers came back that Ts&Cs in contract don’t count for anything & despite having only been in the role a few days, BAE believed the majority of their answers in the CEST tool still stood. Will therefore have to leave before project completes.
Seems to be just a facade of reviewing, with vast majority of roles Inside.
