    If they bail out limited company directors, Rishi will then say that there is justification for treating us like employees and that HMRC is justified in the IR35 war against us. If he does not, there is at least a stronger argument that IR35 is unfair as we didn't get any bail out. Although tbh I reckon when this is all over the Government will just conflate limited company directors with other self employed people and conveniently ignore that there is difference of thousands of pounds in the support given to them.
    You may be lumping contractors in with all the company directors who aren't contractors here.

    Contractors are realistically a special case, neither one thing nor t'other - variously rewarded and punished by personal and corporate tax rules through being in the crossfire as it were. IR35 is a tremendously clumsy band-aid.
    Some may - quite reasonably - say a special 'PSC' sort of vehicle allows HMRC to more directly target us, but I still feel it's worth considering so one at least knows where they stand and that there IS a tax system deliberately set up for us.
