What we can do to help

We take a close look at your contract(s), current and future work practices against live and proposed IR35 law.

What you need to do

We ask you to complete a detailed but simple questionnaire. It does not have to be 100% complete and some questions may not be relevant. The more comprehensive the answers, the more reliable the opinion.

We ask that the questionnaire is countersigned by both contractor and client. This is not essential but it does ensure the best possible evidence for the future and the strongest possible opinion.

We send you a written opinion within 5 working days.

How does it affect you?

Contractor

As a contractor, you are not sure if your private sector gig is in or out of IR35.

You may believe that your public sector engager is incorrectly classifying your engagement within IR35.

Agency

As an agency, you want to be absolutely sure that your clients are operating compliantly.

Client

As a client, you want to attract the best to your business and want to ensure that the engagement you have in mind is truly outside of IR35, both in form and substance.

Frequently asked questions

IR35 is a difficult area of law. It is important to consider all angles in order to make an informed decision.

What has changed with HMRC?

Some commentators are seeing that HMRC is becoming more litigious, more likely to take-up challenges to individual status. We provide a written opinion from a barrister that you can provide to HMRC in the event of an enquiry for the best chance that you won’t have to defend your position in the tribunals.

How has this already affected the public sector?

Your own experience will tell you how the public sector is applying IR35 legislation. If you want a competitive edge, a full status opinion from a barrister gives your engaging client the confidence to engage you on the right basis.

When are the changes for the private sector expected?

Most are agreed that changes are just around the corner. Many clients will not have the in-house expertise to assess IR35 status. A full status opinion from a barrister will give your client the confidence they need and give you the competitive edge.

Where can I get the assurance to continue contracting?

Some providers can give you the opinion of an “industry expert”. We offer you the written opinion of a barrister. When you need a competitive edge, to engage in a genuinely compliant self-employed basis, we can provide you and your client with the assurance you need to continue your business.

Continue contracting with confidence

We provide independent and expert reviews of contracts for individuals, agencies and client companies in the off-payroll work sector; particularly contractors and consultants, to provide a definitive view of worker engagements in respect of IR35.
