From 6 April 2021, the rules for engaging individuals through personal service companies are changing.

If the off-payroll working rules apply, contractor’s fees will be subject to tax and National Insurance contributions.

Ramsay is required to issue all contractors (who currently provide their services through a personal services company) with a Statement Determination Statement. Contractors are able to dispute the Status Determination given to them if they disagree with it. Further details on disagreeing with your Status Determination Statement can be found here.
