Seems to me that prior to the last few budgets/statements this site and others like it have been blind sided with the attacks on Contractors. They've not been able to predict anything from the red box, and have looked a little embarassed afterwards.
There's nothing to be embarassed about, nobody coudl imagine a government so hell bent on screwing us over.
However I noticed the headline on the site this morning about the public sector IR35 rules coming to the private sector. While I am not doubting the desire to do this within HMRC, I can't help but think that this is simply trying to call it just in case it happens.
It may well happen one day, but before the end of this parliament is unlikely and given that the tool is throwing up "outside" at almost everyone, it's clearly no where near ready to be implemented in a far more complex world of the private sector.
