What do people think about these clauses inserted in a contract by an Agency for an Outisde-Ir35 assignment (they are the 'company', I am the 'service provider'):
" - The Service Provider shall indemnify the Company from all claims, actions or demands by third parties (which shall
include the Client), against the Company and from all damages, losses, costs, expenses and payments whatsoever
suffered or incurred by the Company in respect of any breach of the Agreement by the Service Provider arising during the
Agreement. The Company may satisfy this indemnity from any payments due to the Service Provider by the Company.
- The Service Provider shall indemnify the Company and/or its current or previous directors against any claims for tax and
National Insurance made against the Company by the HMRC or any third party in respect of Services provided by the
Service Provider during the period of the Agreement including claims made under the Transfer of Debt Regulations.
- The Service Provider shall indemnify the Company from and against any losses which the Company may incur (including
those arising out of third party claims) as a result of the Consultant(s) claiming to be (or some public body regarding him,
as) an employee or worker of the Company, the Client or the Client's client."
Run-of-the-mill stuff or should I be pushing back?
