    Stay on and receive your IR35 investigation in the post.

    I understand why people choose to risk it, but there seem to be an awful lot have no awareness of any risk at all.

    Look at some of, well most of, the posts in the last month. It will give you a clue of the general contractors awareness of what they do.

    I'm not certain at all, what is certain is nobody knows how HMRC are going to play this.

    Given their track record it is not a risk I'd like to take if I was years into a client and told to move inside IR35.

    He's not certain, just applying a risk profile to a possible outcome.

    The folk I know of who are staying here aren't years in - but they do want to stay until the project ends in a year a so.

    There isn't much awareness of IR35 which I find odd, but there it is.

    It's even worse in the "real world". The regulars here tend to be more clued on average.

    You can't, but why risk it?

    The fact is that it would be too good of an opportunity for HMRC to miss.

    Most of the people in my team are contractors, everyone will be switched to inside ir35 and, as far as I know, everyone is staying.

    No permie role being offered. Inside or leave.

    Will be fun if hmrc decide to do a retrospective investigation (which I believe they'll do), as some of my colleagues have been here for 4+ years.
