    I fully expect HMRC to only target clients who have determined contractors outside post April 2021, except in cases where individual contractors are looked at for other/additional specific reasons.

    A year? - It will only be in February 2023 that we will know who is being investigated for work this year.

    How will they know how to engage a contractor and what to pay without having made a determination?

    Up to contractors to build the outside case then. Get a substitute used, turn work down, etc.

    Or be a bum on a seat and take your medicine.

    They simply say they won't engage with PSCs - as many companies did prior to April 2020. No determination needed. They then just ask the agency to provide them with what they need within that constraint.

    Well maybe. There are other options - outside and we can use a contractor or very well paid FTC. Inside, umbrella route.

    Thinking about it, the client will have better lawyers to defend a claim from HMRC as well.
