Re: Is this just for the IT sector?

I only ask as away from IT, I know several 'paid consultant' type functions that should be on the payroll but are continuously paid as a contractor. I assume it should stop those roles continuing too?

Yep, and they're in HMRC's sights as well, as we've seen with various entertainment cases.. One rule of thumb is the longer you're in/on one job, the higher the risk you'll be found inside IR35, especially if there are FTE's working alongside.
