Unfair IR35 assessment
I received an individual assessment using the CEST tool to assess IR35 status during a meeting with HR and I was proven to be outside IR35. telent have now consulted their company tax advisor who has decided I am inside IR35 due to them not understanding their own contract and choosing to interpret the contract in a way that the contract does not support so that I am forced to go and work inside IR35 through Telecom People. I'm due to finish my contract at the end of the month. I will leave and take time to reflect if I can do business in this hostile environment, when companies are doing their best to mislead and force us inside IR35. The atmosphere is very negative and I'm really angry, but I shall remain professional.
