Tax and employment law are slightly different and we've already been discussing this in great detail in other threads so not sure why we are on the brink of starting this all over again. Take this point (if there is one) to the other threads this is already being discussed. This one is about the ESS tool.This is other other side of the IR35 determination problem, any PSC caught "inside" by the tests should be able to bring a claim for employment rights, holidays, pensions, sick pay - the works. I can't imagine a situation other than a purposely botched "test case" (which happens more than you think) in which a Court could say "well, these tests show that you are subject to SDC, no real substitution rights etc so we will regard you as an employee for tax purposes but NOT AN EMPLOYEE for anything else".

The real beneficiaries of IR35 are the employers, and always have been. For a reduced cost of employment - even for a higher day rate - and a far less onerous set of legal requirements they can persuade the employees that they are better off. It started with bankers, but also applies to the Civil Service, the BBC, many hotel chains, swathes of the NHS and social services, cockle pickers and on and on and on. Why do you think there is no pressure to remove it other than from us contractors?
Blog? What blog...?
More time posting than coding
Rumours from a show and tell this morning of one version of the tool say it's heavily RoS based and some mention of more than 4 concurrent clients.
Still may not be a current version of the tool & weighting so treat with necessary caution.
I live on CUK
All other forms of taxis it is up to the driver to find the quickest and shortest route possible. Plus if the driver runs out of fuel they can stop at a petrol station if they want, but Uber drivers aren't allowed to do that.
Hence Uber fails on D&C.
