IR35 is the talk of recruitment right now and no one can escape it. Contractors, clients and even us recruiters will be affected when the off-pay

roll reforms are extended to the private sector in April 2020.

But don’t panic. Because even if you haven’t prepared, we’ve been working hard in the background to create a dedicated solution. We even hosted our very own IR35 workshop to help our candidates and clients prepare ahead of the changes.

A brief overview of IR35

Also known as ‘the intermediaries legislation’, IR35 is tax legislation that aims to combat tax avoidance by individual workers and the companies using them. In short, it’s been brought in to ensure that contractors aren’t working in the same capacity as an employee would.

Currently rolled out in the public sector, it falls to the contractor to determine whether they are inside or outside of IR35 – and make the required tax deductions. However, this is set to change when the accountability is switched to lie with the end client instead.

I’m a contractor. What does this mean for me?

From April 2020, it will fall to your client to determine whether you’re inside or outside of IR35. If found inside, you’ll need to pay the same taxes as employees (which could significantly impact your finances).

Your client needs to assess each and every one of their contractors to determine their IR35 status. And that’s where the first issues arise. With the deadline looming, many clients are choosing to unfairly enforce a blanket ban, putting everyone inside IR35.

Worried that you’ve been inaccurately assessed? You can ensure you’re paying the right amount of tax and will stay compliant with our tool. It’s the only solution on the market that offers unconditional insurance.
