IR35 – we’ve got your back

What is IR35?

IR35 is a type of tax legislation designed to prevent contractors from working in permanent employment as a ‘disguised employee’ in order to reap certain tax benefits permanent staff cannot.

Why is IR35 important to contractors?

If you’re ‘inside’ IR35, you’re considered a permanent employee and will be taxed as such. If you’re ‘outside’ the legislation, you’re considered to be self-employed and will be entitled to various tax relief schemes, meaning higher take-home pay. Trading as a Limited Company and working ‘outside’ IR35 can result in higher take-home pay than an Umbrella agreement, but you need to be certain about your position. Your status could change from contract to contract – get it wrong and you could face financial penalties. It’s often difficult to determine whether you’re in or outside of IR35, and that’s why it’s important to go through a contract review processes to clarify if any part of your work falls inside the legislation.

What is changing in April 2020?

Following a period of consultation, HMRC have decided to bring the rules around IR35 in the private sector into line with the public sector. This means that the IR35 determination, and associated burden of risk will move from the contractor to the end hirer. You can read more about the changes here.
