Unfair IR35 assessment
Diageo have covered themselves carefully this time around. All contractors have been through an assessment process (using CEST) including board reviews where a status was initially inconclusive.
However - all positions have been found Inside after review, with a handful of exceptions. These exceptions constitute people in senior positions....
While Diageo have played the compliance game correctly, their final assessments are in line with their decision to non longer use PSCs. Basically it's a blanket.
