    It's deliberate isn't it? They need to create as much uncertainty as they can so that they can spread further confusion.

    When I worked on payroll and T&A systems, the basic hours for a year were always assumed to be 1700. This might be a starting point for you.

    the IR35 calculator is too simplistic. It doesn't take into account income splitting or when EES isn't payable. It doesn't take into account the tax code either.
