    I know that. In fact I was thinking about this last night. For the time being, however, relieved I did it judging by the times - IR35 and coronavirus.

    You have a right to be worried - sounds like a tax avoidance scheme to me.

    Staggered that as a first time contractor you didn't investigate this fully or speak to an accountant.

    Good luck!

    Are they changing the rule at all (not that I am aware of)?

    Or are they making the tool 'more inside-IR35 bias' - defintitely.

    Any guidance as to what these 'changes' are?

    Asked them if the rate would be increased - they said no.

    Expect this will be the case at the majority of places.

    They are using the CEST but it is being manipulated to give an inside IR35 verdict (imo).

    Good luck trying to get a rate rise if you take a different role with another one of their clients despite the job being vastly different.
  40. How would you interpret this notice period from my contract?

    *Agency* Notice Period: / Consulting Company Notice Period: 0/0

    Does that mean you don't have to give notice to leave or there is NO notice period (as in you can't leave).
