I was hoping for some opinions on this scenario:
My PS client has taken the blanket decision that "everyone is inside" - so naturally I'm not prepared to extend my contract that runs out this week.
I've provided them with all the evidence that I'm outside: running the HMRC tool, running the test at IR35testing and also a QDOS review but they're still not willing to take the "risk".
I'm not prepared to raise my rates and accept an "inside" position as that would potentially open me up to the argument that I agree that I'm inside.
However, the client has now offered to pay in advance for a fixed number of days consultancy - so it's a different contract, but the role and tasks remain unchanged.
