What is IR35?

IR35 is not a punishment

IR35 is the tax legislation designed to tax ‘disguised employment' at a rate similar to employment. It is an important topic, and one that we take very seriously. View our IR35 FAQ's for further information on IR35 issues and the rules that apply.

IR35 FAQ's

Factors influencing IR35 status

Many factors influence a contractor's IR35 status but some of the key determinants are:

  • Set out in the terms of your contract
  • Determined by the actual business practices you follow
  • Within the structure and commercial operation of your limited company

Paying the right amount of tax depends upon claiming all your expenses and understanding whether your IR35 status could make you a "disguised employee" and a contractor not in business on their own account.

Disguised Employees

As a client of InTouch we can advise you on key areas of ‘substitution', ‘control' and ‘mutuality of obligation'. If we consider you are likely to be viewed as a disguised employee we'll provide practical suggestions to help you stay on the right side of this issue.

Genuinely in Business- the Do's and Don'ts

Being “genuinely in business” includes adopting independent business practices, managing risk, and understanding ‘substitution', ‘control' and ‘mutuality of obligation' clauses. We help clients navigate these muddy waters to safeguard their assets and know where they stand.
