Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: Offshore Manager Terminations and Testing Package
Assessment Tool use CEST They made a decision without my precence. The two people who made the decisions and Contractors of Ørsted (who of course will never be deemed inside IR35) The determination should have been made by a 3rd party. I feel sad, depressed and disheartened. They’ve given me more work to do. Contractors are leaving, work ethic has changed, atmosphere is awful, people are feeling betrayed. We work genuinely long hours but if a staff member was to do the hours we do, they’d get over time and a pat on the back!

Been told deemed inside IR35, currently on another project for a different company covering the same role and I'm outside IR35. New project inside IR35 wanting me to supply my own laptop pay for travel, hotel etc. To place of work other than the site address stated in contract and then claim expenses back at later date. The project itself is 28days on/off from May-Nov but the days are calculated as 5 days a week over 12 months so take home is a lot less. How this falls inside IR35 is beyond me.

Bullied, astonished, bewildered, disappointed and totally confused. SSE announce out of the blue on 31/01 that all ltd company Contractors currently operating in the company will be under an umbrella by 28/02. Message to Contractors adds comply or we will sever your contract. Leaving no time for its Contractors to consder the financial implications on Ltd company finances or allow for any sort of tax and finance planning. So very angry right now. Is nobody in the UK government going to address this?
