Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: Change Management
Phoenix have moved from blanket ban of PSCs to QDOS assessment but key questions such as no substitution and they exercise control as to how service is delivered already pre-filled so appears like a blanket ban in all but name by role rather than delivery for contractors already in situ who are currently working outside IR35. No view of new contract terms and no increase in rates (expect this to vary behind the scenes as happened a year ago). Contractors have 48 hours to accept the QDOS decision. Awaiting formal outcome but all looks set up to move the majority of contractors to inside IR35 regardless of what they are delivering.
