    Default 6th April 2021 - what will you do?

    Currently in a contract (OS IR35) with a large supplier to the public sector. My contract ends in February '21 but indications are the there will be a requirement until August '21.

    Had an email the other day from the supplier saying that from 6/4/21 my role will be deemed as inside IR35. Contacted my agent who said that in the event that my role is extended they will raise a contract from Feb to 6 April for my LtdCo and then I'll need to get an Umbrella Co if I want to stay on past 6/4/21.

    Not sure what I'm going to do yet - especially given that the supplier have stated that they will not be looking at revising the rates. 'If' I accept the extended role I guess I'll 'park' the LtdCo and see the contract out beneath an umbrella and hope that a role OS IR35 appears.

    I think for the public sector it's probably game over for yer typical Ltd Co contractor, which leads me to wonder how many private sector roles will remain OS IR35.

    Just wondered what everyone else thinks, and what your plans are?

    Why? I'm in the PS and have always worked outside, and continue to get approached for OS roles

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    I'd go read the IR35 posts from December 2019 to March 2020 and not ask the same questions that were answered there, hoping to get different answers.

    I think you'll find the same PUBLIC SECTOR questions were asked by confused people back then too, even if not directly applicable to the April 2020 date.

    If the client believes the role is inside IR35 why isn't it now.

    So the all important question - is your end client deeming your role inside IR35 or are they just implementing a blanket ban on PSCs.

    If it's the former they need to provide you with an SDS, if it's the latter they don't need to.

    I think you'll find I asked what people were thinking, not for a definitive answer. But congratulations for being the first person to give a snarky reply. I bet your mum's proud of you.

    And I told you where to find what people were thinking. But, in the General forum, stupid questions do deserve (if not demand) snarky replies.
