    But if the client accepts it, then the risk is on them and not on you. Unless perhaps you're carrying any retrospective risk at this client.

    Either way it's good you have it!
    It is a new client. Only been there a few weeks.

    Not sure why you think the reasoning is weak:

    Not controlled in "how" you do the work is a strong outside pointer.

    These may not be strong indicators on their own, but in support of the lack of SDC, it says he's not part and parcel, MoO is limited, and he's in business for himself. No one of those would put him outside but the four of them together would make a decent argument, and when you put it with lack of SDC it's pretty clear.

    Indeed.

    None of those are particulary strong IR35 indicators bar maybe the last one. Have to be careful with working practices around that one though.

    Not sure really. So they had 8 sections to complete with a number of questions underneath each. I was sent the 8 high level areas but not seen the detail below. I think there is more to the result than that but that was the brief above it.

    I know there are some inside and some outside but not seen what others were given as they have not shared.

    I have tried it via CEST too and got an outside result. Not that it means anything. Also want my results from qdos to see what their view is for my own benefit.

    Sure.

    Some of the points they clarified were:

    Exercise an adequate level of control over how, what or where you work. Not dictated by Client X
    There is financial risk during the engagement with Client X
    The contractor is not integrated into Client X's business
    There is no significant notice period written into the contract with Client X
    The company is permitted to deliver services for other clients whilst still working with Client X

    I have not asked for more information. I would like to see what Qdos state as they did a very detailed one which I completed according to the working practices.

    Congrats! Can you detail the reasoning behind the Outside determination? Would be good for everyone to get a better understanding.

    so lots of new offshore resources brought in that can't deliver to the same level. Yay.
