Blanket ban

Outside IR35 banned
Division: Capita for TfL
Capita are not engaging contractors via Limited Companies with a blanket ban, no assessment, not offering PAYE, and are quoting an all in rate that includes Employer NI, and forcing use of umbrellas of their selection via a PSL. I found another contract outside IR35 and left mid contract, which I’ve never done before but a lack of business partnership goes both ways.

Fair decision made, combination of CEST and review of working practice. Great process!

IR35 fairly assessed
Division: Change
Outside IR35; assessment done via IR35 Shield. Simple. No dramas, great dialogue and a new contract. Superb!

Contractors being rolled off. Little communication and no debate. Morale is poor and the place is pretty chaotic tbh.

Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: IT
CEST based IR35 assessments but all seem to be coming out as 'inside'. Not yet aware of any 'outside' assessment results despite a large number of assessments of different roles. Most contractors are leaving. Driven by HR, new hires being brought in in many instances to replace contractors but without the necessary skills or experience. Enormous potential to negatively impact strategic projects after end of March 2021.
