    Interesting that they took away the branded van he had hired.

      Might be better off in a separate thread.

      I was listening to the head of Pimlico on R4 this morning. He was absolutely certain that the guy supplying his own tools was an indication of self employment - because HMRC had told him so. The plumbers lawyer had won on right of substitution not being present. As I understood the reporting of course.

      There are more similar cases pending, I understand.

        Happy to switch this to a new thread, but I don't know how to.

        I think this is hugely significant for those who get deemed inside ir35. Basically means you get your day rate for (say) 25 days a year. That's a huge bonus right there and would ease the pain of being "caught".

          Contact admin and ask them to separate the last few posts off.

            In regards to significance it really depends on your actual contract and how it works in practice.

            That's why they stated with the female cyclist who was deemed an employee each case is dependent on its own merits.

              He was a contractor on £80K (he could have been on £40K as an employee).

              HMRC will take a very close interest in his case....

                Was just going to post about this. Surely he's just shot himself in the foot by insisting he's INSIDE IR35 and will now pay taxes for the past 6 years?

                  First he loses his Brexit case, now this.

                  Hasn't he heard, contractors are now banned.
                  His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

                    oh dear a tiger among the pigeons.

                    Looks like the banning of contractors in government jobs was a good move for the government then.
