Unfair IR35 assessment
Very similar SDS as last year using HMRC CEST tool. No longer will engage a limited company contractor after March. Interestingly also banned the use of umbrellas so if wanting to stay must go through PAYE with agent (but not all able to offer). Most contractors don’t seem to care and not even appealed, heads well in the sand.

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

Unfair IR35 assessment
Blanket ban on PSC’s. Provided with an ‘SDS’ Flawed CEST used as ‘assessment’ method with clearly a copy & paste ‘individual’ assessment (change the name & agent at the top of the document) no assessment of the actual individual or the contract terms with the Agency. When I Fill in CEST with their answers gives ‘unable to determine’ typical risk adverse approach. Indication of forced PAYE no option to engage as PSC, commitment to reply to appeals within 45 days from 27th Feb which would take any reply past 6th April reform deadline. no formal process in places to manage appeals. Should people decide to move on projects will be severely impacted.

I expect by now they already know their decision but are working around the legal side of things. I have played with the CEST tool which ends with an ‘unable to determine’ result so no idea how that’s helps either me or the client. Toss of a coin perhaps? Atmosphere among the teams seams OK but I have been worried about this since last year and still nom the wiser, lost sleep over it stressed but ultimately it’s our side my control. Utterly powerless

Informed by RLE that determinations have yet to be done by Nissan and contractors will be informed W/C 24th FEB!!!! All communication from RLE comes with an attachment indicating their preferred umbrella companies, so probably a big hint there. Unbelievable timing from Nissan, end of Feb is far too late! Looking for alternative work.

Initially told we would know the decision after Christmas shutdown. Still no idea and kept waiting. No consultation, no communication. They need to get this right with such a high number of temporary workers, people will just walk away as rates are already low.
