    Once again it comes down to a few fundamentals that no-one seems to be willing to consider.

    1. The client being honest about the type of resource they need
    2. The contractor being honest about the type of worker they are
    3. Appropriate contracts that reflect the nature of the engagement

    It doesn't matter if the client uses an agency to do the leg work or decides to engage directly.

    I totally agree with you. The majority of contractors know they are caught by IR35 but continue to operate outside it as the lure of the extra money is too much.

    This can't be right in afraid. That would assume a majority of contractors know about Ir35. As we have seen recently this is far from the case. There will be plenty of them popping up like meerkats in the next 4 months. Some of the questions you'll see on here in that period will make you want to weep. It's ban season for me I expect.

    Exactly.

    However, what is definitely happening in the market is an increasing number of small 'consultancies' or providers building large groups of contract associates and taking on the big consultancies. There are a few variants I've seen and I don't think this is due to IR35 per se. I do think it will continue to grow in popularity in specialist areas for more senior but less technical roles. It will be interesting to see if anyone can make the model work for more common roles like dev, PM/BA etc but I have doubts.
