    Nope. Same as if they offered you a rental car. How they pay for the vehicle is irrelevant to you as you are not an employee of theirs unless you are on their PAYE.

    Otherwise when you get a courtesy car from a dealer while yours is in for repair would be a BIK.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    And is subject to PAYE I guess.

    I have done a couple of roles in the past where the accommodation (and flights) were provided (and paid for) by the client. Wonder if the taxman will be interested in these kind of arrangements if caught within IR35. Would they even have any way of knowing?

    All hypothetical really but I can see this becoming a more widely adopted model moving forward & I'll bet HMRC will have it in their sights once they're aware.

    If inside IR35 then yes, subject to PAYE. If outside then it’s just company income and you’d be able to extract the money tax free as an expense payment subject to thenusual rules on travel and subsistence.

    Both covbob and I found the thread very inneresting. And because it’s so inneresting, I’m going to move it to general and then close it.
