I'm using a client-provided laptop to carry out work on a day-to-day basis. However, another contractor is using a personal one for IR35 reasons (ie, using his own demonstrates that he's not an employee). He's also refused a work phone to keep his business and the client separated.
We deal with a lot of sensitive and personal financial information so I figured it'd be best to use the client laptop for security reasons.
So, am I okay to use a client-provided laptop and work phone or does it contradict IR35? I've searched online for an answer but can't find a solid 'yes' or 'no'.
