    The idea is to have more reliability, and also to do self-serve (easier via a portal/CLI than raising tickets even with a fairly responsive partner). As such there will need to be adaptation to be...

    They are very keen already, so no convincing needed; any persuasion I’d need to do would be for the purposes of wriggling out. It’s via someone I know that recommended me.

    Opting in and non-residence

    Is there any relevance either way to not being resident/tax-resident in the UK from the point of view of opting in or not? Ordinarily I'd be inclined to opt in to benefit from a theoretically shorter...

    Nope. If you're referring to the internal market bill it doesn't affect citizens' rights.
