    The issue here is i want to know exactly what the issue is/outset regulation within the company and through hmrc so that i can construct an email to the company themselves).
    What's the question? I doesn't matter who's laptop it is (from a WFH perspective, anyway).

    If you agreed to WFH with your client, then do it.

    If you didn't, then don't expect just to be able to text/email them and say you are and expect them to agree to you billing for that day.

    Did you get agreement from your client that you could WFH?

    You need to set WFH up in advance and it's clear you've already done things that will make that impossible s you've lost the trust of your end client. I'm sorry but WFH is not something a lot of clients want as if they did they would outsource it somewhere cheaper (like India, Bulgaria, Belarus)

    Not sure this needs much resolving.

    Has your line manager (for want of a better, more B2B word) ever seen your contract or have you signed some vanilla 'IR35' friendly thing from an agency? Does the agency contract to client and agency contract to you match? (Easy email to agency and document response).

    What you'll probably find is the line manager has never seen the contract you signed, the contract will have a paragraph of 'can work elsewhere by agreement and where practicable'. The line manager will be difficult and say that is proof you need permission.

    You need to have a good relationship with your client and explain the B2B nature, they are likely to say they got you on as part of the team and their answer stands. You then detail an email to explain that you will be on site for the remainder of the contract as this is most practical. You then leave ASAP.

    Resolved. Case closed.

    Whilst possible to be both it seems very unlikely. Working for yourself - GOV.UK

    Details are important for your other questions so make sure YOU know the facts and details about yourself.

    which company? Yours or your client's?

    Details. Details.


    I know the answer but you really do need to get on top of this stuff. Otherwise you're going to get ****ed by HMRC sooner rather than later.
