How on earth is changing the way you are paid and staying with your ex-employer living the contractor lifestyle?

If you want the contractor lifestyle you need to jack your job in and go be a proper contractor, not a hidden permie constantly looking over their shoulder for the world of trouble that will come their way if they get investigated.
And my take on this is that there is effectively no way you can contract with your ex employer and be outside IR35. If, and that is a big if, it really is a move from a staff job to one they needed to get another business in to help them you have a bigger fight than most of us on to prove it. They will take an immediate stance of inside and you have to argue otherwise, something that seems to be difficult to do without the ex-staff status hanging over you.
