    Did you read the link? These companies are no longer going to engage with Ltd company contractors outside IR35! Defacto deeming them all inside.

    Wrong. There is a huge difference between a client not determining a role's status (via policy of having no active contracts as of April 2020) and determining a role within IR35.

    If you don't understand the implications of this, then I'd suggest doing some more reading of the threads in this forum.

    The policy is the determination. Otherwise the policy would be to keep hiring contractors outside IR35.

    Wrong again. Go read what the determination actually is and the specific requirements the client has once that determination has been made.

    April 2020 changes to off-payroll working for clients - GOV.UK

    If you still believe you are correct, answer this:

    Do you believe Lloyds and Barclays has/will "pass your determination and the reasons for the determination to the worker and the person or organisation you contract with" (from that page) with respect to every contractor that has recently been notified of their future?

    Do you think they will "make sure you keep detailed records of your employment status determinations, including the reasons for the determination and fees paid" and "have processes in place to deal with any disputes that arise from your determination"

    They've made a policy decision so that they don't have to do this stuff.

    Yup. It's been that way for yonks.

    Let me think, there's been Pimlico Plumbers, Deliveroo, Uber, some courier company. All fighting to prove one way or another.

    They're not "having no active contracts" - they've said that all future contracts must be either under an umbrella company or on a fixed term contract direct with the bank. The policy isn't to currently deem all contracts inside IR35 now, their policy is to not engage anyone via a Ltd company in the future.

    source - am currently contracting with LBG and have received emails both from my agency and internally from the back saying this.

    Ok, "having no active contracts directly via a PSC". I was trying to keep things simple to get the point over. Its gone quiet now so I think (s)he's finally got it.

    Yes, that's the point I was getting over. Thanks for reiterating.

    I could be pedantic too and point out that its not that they will not engage anyone via a Ltd company, since that what MSCs will likely be
