    the validity of any substitution clause is key in the CEST assessment and also in those of QDOS et al. So, the courts might not place the utmost of importance on it, but CEST and QDOS certainly do.

    yes, now it is. But in effect it's the same as IR35. The contractor has to prove that they are independent.

    that's HMRC's (and their moles) take on it. But OK, point me to any case where the judge ruled the substitution clause as a sham and threw it out and then judged the individual as an employee.

    however, the principle of any person working in an employment type role being taxed as an employee existed before IR35. A friend (yes I do...
