Unfair IR35 assessment
Role based determination - used gov CEST tool, for which they input their own answers. My answers differed quite considerably. Was finally told, due to my role I am seen as being inside IR35. Further that I would have to use an Umbrella Company if I wish to continue working with them past April 21. I don't entirely blame the client, businesses are already very busy and lack the necessary skills to make these determinations.
I feel as though I am being punished by HMRC for working as a self employed contractor for many, many years. A way or working that I was very much encouraged to take by successive governments over many years. Be an entrepreneur, run your own business, help the economy grow, increase your earning potential, etc, etc... until such time as they decide you are actually doing ok for yourself and deserve to be put back in your place. Rant over... for now...
