Thanks but that doesn't alter my point: the legislation is going to need changing to bring it in line with HMRC's intentions and it looks as though they acknowledge that. Also their statement does not cover the position on agencies which this partiuclar article was about - only umbrellas.

Generally , if legislation needs to be amended to comply with the intentions of HMRC ,then it's time to kiss the system Goodbye
