    None of us thought otherwise.

    Oh, and you can take the 12-month blurb with a wagon-load of salt too.

    Aside from a comparative lack of contract roles available right now, in a month or two they will pick up, albeit with 99% being Inside IR35.

    For those starting Now, those people won't have any comparative measure of what it Was like. April / May will be their introductory baseline.

    Inside, Tax Paid, No further interest from HMRC.

    I started in the year IR35 was introduced. My baseline. Although I was aware of others around me bemoaning the Brave New World, for me I knew no better. And got on with it.

    Just to offer of an alternate point of view...

    Just change your business model to target small company clients, you'll be fine.

    ...is the most disingenuous, mileading part of the whole sorry mess.

    They promise to get easy on all the blanket-banners? Geez thanks guys you rock.

    Meanwhile blanket-banners don't trust HMRC any more than we do, which is why they are blanket-banners.

    No the 12 months is a 'promise' to go easy on incorrect status determinations made in the first 12 months. Cold comfort when most of us have been blanket-banned.

    They've made no promises about retro that mean anything even if you were to trust them to keep their word.
