• Yes I didn't think IR35 applied to this circumstance, but it's good to have this backed up.

    Am I a worker not an employee though because "workers are not employees if they are free, without penalty, to accept or reject any offer of work made to them"?

    Either way I should still be adding holiday entitlement at the 10.77% rate to all invoices right?

    Cheers for your help with this by the way!

  • I think - could be wrong though - your best option here if they won't accept that you are 'Worker' is to PAYE via an umbrella company.

  • Thanks Howard. I'd been referring to that .gov page and the only point that might not apply is "their employer has to have work for them to do as long as the contract or arrangement lasts" but I can't be certain I'm not misunderstanding it.

    Thanks for your help too, hopefully it doesn't come to needing an umbrella company as I'm not sure it's worth it in terms of effort or probable fallout.
