BP
Outside IR35 banned
BP appears to have gone to a PAYE or Umbrella Only model. Role was initially advised as Inside IR35, but the absence of a SDS made me question this. Still waiting for confirmation but seems pretty clear.

Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: Engineering
Still awaiting decision on individual assessment from QDOS. Very late in the day. CEST tool indicated Outside IR35 and working practices back this up. Morale dropping by the week the longer it drags on. All new engagements are permie only but they are struggling to fulfil roles. Rumors are there will be a blanket inside decision made as late as possible. Most non local contractors will walk.

Nissan NTCE
Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: Programme Mangement Department
Blanket Assessment using CEST. No individual assessments - notification that "you are all inside IR35". Completely disregarding any personal circumstance and showing zero evidence of "Reasonable Care" as required by statute. PAYE contracts being issued by agencies from 1st April. Already derisory rates now going to be driven lower. People are already / have already left - some for positions overseas. Projects will inevitably be impacted. Sadly I am not surprised by this late and incoherent decision. I don't believe Nissan fully grasp the implications of what they have done - just taken the "easy option". Class action next? https://www.contractorcalculator.co.uk/inside_ir35_contractor_legal_settlement_544710_news.aspx
