I want you to know that I have been so pleased to work with you on this. Despite me working with IR35 for many years in has been amazing to gain your insight and knowledge on this legislation and the reform. Your knowledge, advice and general ‘chat throughs’ have been so great for me. You are second to none on this and I couldn’t thank you enough.
