Exactly, couldn't have put it better myself!

I've just had the situation where a client of mine has been offered a role and two things stand out.
1) The council have already decided that the role is IR35 regardless of the individual circumstances of the contractor. I can understand the approach to ease on the administration but not quite the letter of the law is it!?
2) The council have put up the day rate from £500/day to £800/day to compensate for it being "within IR35". Hence increasing it by more than the amount they'll end up collecting in tax anyway!!
The whole system is broke even before its barely started.

Couldn't agree with your post more, I feel it opens up a dangerous precedent for employees to be taxed on income they may never receive. Does this now mean that company's can't fund an EBT used to run a share option scheme?

Am I right in thinking that there is no kind of "appeal" process should the PSC be deemed to be inside IR35 by the "end-user" for the sake of their simplicity and attitue to risk when there is evidence that they would fall out.
Would like to be wrong.....
Agree that the best way to deal with IR35 is to put more resources into investigations which have become non-existent rather than fiddling around with new legislation and online tools,
