    I am not sure if MoO is relevant when it comes to IR35, at least not in the eyes of HMRC, so you would have to be prepared for a court battle to prove them wrong. I think it will be very hard to...

    Companies with less than 50 employees will be exempt, but given that for larger companies it will be problematic to contract anyone without PAYE.
