    The main risk is for those who continue at the same contract, who self-classed as "outside" via PSC but now the client is forcing them to work either inside, or via umbrella/PAYE model due to the...

    Very fair point, the burden is on the end-client.

    Though... no doubt agencies etc will have clauses in the contract along the lines of any such remedial fine or action by HMRC would have to be...

    Reminds me of a thread I was very active in this time last year. Similar thing, PSC ban, PAYE or Umbrella only etc etc.

    Ultimately.. same agency, same NI number is submitted to HMRC (yours) but...

    Retro and no PSCs

    I'm sorry but this is incorrect, I recently left RBS due to the risks of this and their blanket ban of PSCs.
    This was well discussed in this thread from page 25 onwards:...

    Yup - finished up today despite having a 6-month extension offered (blanket ban on PSCs) - just too much risk for me to carry on as discussed in the primary thread on this.

    Ridiculous how this is playing on people's lives and minds. Appreciate the input. I have decided the risk is too great, so I am now working till 28th Feb and then come the new FY, will look for a new...

    This sounds as though Umbrella certainly is the "safer" option? This lack of clarify for me is another reason why IR35 reforms just aren't ready yet.

    One concern I have is that the agency are looking to link the current ltd co. engagement with the new "umbrella" engagement. I have concerns of this and my instinct is to walk away, but I'd hate to...

    Frustrating isn't it - also in a similar situ. I am in a position where I do have savings/warchest, but I am loathed to eat into them when I believe I am skilled enough to be in "work". Are you...

    Can you be a bit more specific on this, as returning to NZ is an option I have as well.
    Say in your case.. you have £90K in your company account.
