    Default Retrospective IR35 investigations

    Dave Chaplin has posted on Linkedin that HMRC are already retrospectively investigating public sector contractors who have taken PAYE roles since the implementation of the new rules in the public sector. So much for HMRC's statements to the contrary. So in reality, whatever situation you find yourself in from April 2020, you will not be spared an IR35 retrospective investigation. Time to prime the weapons I think!

    I would imagine going outside to inside in the same role or just accepting inside roles after having operated exclusively outside beforehand will certainly increase the chances of a retrospective investigation.

    I'm quitting my gig on 28 Feb and will be looking for another outside role. How long I'll be on the bench is anyone's guess.

    Really, why is anyone surprised by this?

    I read on a thread a few days ago that a newbie stated that this forum was risk averse!

    And this is why fellas!

    I love newbies; they're so fresh, so pure. They smell like clouds.

    I have a lot of time for Dave and the work he has been doing, but I wish he was more cautious with his words especially when next to that post is a post advertising his insurance product.
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. 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.”

    he doesn't have to maintain a seat at the table, so he doesn't have to be. Generally, from what I can see, he has achieved much more than any other organisation, including that one which claims to represent the interests of many contractors.
