    Not that I can see. It's still referring you to the old Employment Status Indicator.

    They did say this wouldn't be available until the end of Feb, so I expect it will be released on the 28th.

    Yes, I think it was on CUK, where it was reported it would be the 20th.

    Rumour was the tool was not behaving how they wanted it too...

    I think it was, "originally" (although perhaps unofficially). They keep pushing it back...

    I heard a release of the build on friday keeled over with more than 25 concurrent users, though it's anyone's guess what the actual story is.

    Should be good when they release it late and it has to cope with determining the status of 20,000+ contractors
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    I was contacted by a recruiter last week, for a position in Newcastle, doing Java, with cross-training to Scala. I asked immediately if it was for HMRC, and the guy instantly replied back, "Yes, and it's definitely outside IR35 until the end of March". When I asked, "And after?", the reply was "We just don't know yet".

    Needless to say, I declined that opportunity.

    Just received an e-mail about helping them to test the private beta (must've signed up at some point ). Link to the ESS forthcoming, apparently, so there is some movement...
