    However, if you are subject to an enquiry and you can prove that you are 'low risk' they will close the case down and will not bother you for three years. See page 10 of this.
    Surely only a business can be investigated for IR35 so that should be a key differentiator between a contractor and a permie. Just being targeted for an IR35 investigation proves you are a business and you are in the clear? Sorted

        I had thought the same thing initially, but I was afraid in case mentioning it caused some kind of glitch in the space-time continuum and would destroy the universe. Apparently my fears were unfounded.

            I'm a "real" business, no really, my customers are members of the public, I have premises and employees etc

            Last year's spend on advertising was approx £500 (most business is repeat or word of mouth/high street walk ins) so wtf do they get this arbitrary £1200 from?

              They're in the business of making things up, like the judges who catch up with the rest of the world every 20 - 30 years in batches.
