No. This is a new requirement 2. Will this be inside or outside IR35? Our pre-engagement test performed on the HMRC employment tool is indicating that this is outside of IR35. However, HMRC have recently updated this test and certain questions can only be answered once we are in contract with an individual as they are about the Worker themselves. Therefore the test will need to be re-run at that point. NICE cannot take any responsibility should the test result differ from the pre-engagement test.
