Find answers to frequently asked questions about IR35 and the services we offer.

What is IR35?

IR35, also known as the Intermediaries legislation', is a tax regulation in the United Kingdom.
It aims to distinguish between genuine self-employed individuals and employees who work through intermediaries such as limited companies or personal service companies (PSCs) to reduce their tax liabilities.
IR35 can significantly impact a businesses operations by influencing how it engages with contractors and manages its workforce.

Who does IR35 apply to?

IR35 applies to contractors who work through an intermediary, such as a limited company or a personal service company. Contractors would be considered employees for tax purposes if the intermediary were not involved.

How does IR35 work?

Under IR35, the responsibility for determining the employment status of a contractor lies with the client or the end hirer. If the contractor is deemed to be inside IR35, the client is responsible for deducting income tax and National Insurance contributions from their payments.
IR35 works by assessing the nature of the working relationship between contractors and the companies they work for through intermediaries. It ensures that individuals don't exploit the system to pay less tax whilst performing roles that resemble traditional employment.

What are the consequences of IR35?

The consequences of IR35 can vary depending on whether a contractor is deemed inside or outside IR35.
They extend beyond financial implications to encompass administrative burdens, compliance risks, talent considerations, operational disruptions, and reputation management.
Navigating IR35 effectively requires careful planning, clear communication, and proactive risk management from both contractors and the businesses engaging them.

How can I prepare for IR35?

To prepare for IR35, contractors and businesses should review their contracts, working practices, and ensure they are compliant with the legislation. Seeking professional advice can also help navigate the complexities of IR35.
