    Default Being asked to undertake a different role to the contracted duties

    Morning,

    I知 currently under contract as a business analyst 5 days a week until the middle of next year.

    However there is a shortfall of resource on the project and I suspect I値l be asked to spend half my time doing business analysis on a project, and half my time doing project management.

    I was thinking I get two contracts with the same client drawn up, as I知 supplying two different services...or am I being too pedantic? Theoretically they could have two different day rates....

    Any advice gratefully received...

    Thanks

    You are not being pedantic. You should be doing this to protect your IR35 status.

    The thread below starts off on a slightly different theme but a long discussion about why you should do as you suggested.

    You are being pedantic. Suck it up.

    I keep pushing forwards but they keep pushing me backwards. So I have new rules. 1. Don't feed the trolls you know they have no souls. 2. Don't respond to them they'll only post back back again. 3. Don't be their friend they'll only knife you in the back. I have new rules I count them.

    It could be an issue if this contract was subject to an IR35 investigation.

    However, how likely are agent and client to be amenable issuing 'dual' contracts to you? Great if they will but I'll be surprised if they do.

    One contract is sufficient. But you need another statement of work describing the PM role, deliverables, outcomes etc, or else you've converted yourself to a disguised employee.

    It can all be done under a single contract. Get an updated statement of work (or draft it yourself) and then provide a quote for the PM / BA role.
