Fingers like lightning
Still gathering requirements...
Sounds to me that Agencies need to up their game and make sure that new contracts have had due diligence applied.
Saying these are just generic terms is not good enough TBH
It's pretty much been my concern all along - how responsible for the fine/back tax will the agency be? While it's a generic clause, I'd want an extra clause inserting, confirm that "the above clause in no way exonerates the agency from its financial obligations should the contract later be deemed inside IR35 while initially being declared outside IR35."
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he didn't exist
