IR35 is the tax legislation which determines whether an individual is truly self employed, or is in fact working as a ‘disguised employee’ in permanent employment in order to take advantage of certain tax relief schemes which permanent employees cannot.
Your IR35 status determines your tax position with HMRC and as such can affect your take-home pay levels. Working as a contractor through a Limited Company ‘outside’ of IR35, you are able to split your income between a low salary and dividends in order to keep your Tax and National Insurance contributions to a minimum. You thereby achieve higher take-home pay than a full-time employee earning the same base pay.
As a ‘deemed employee’ working on a contract ‘inside’ IR35, you are expected to pay the same amount of Tax and National Insurance contributions as a full-time employee, whether that’s via your Limited Company, through your client’s payroll, or via an Umbrella Company. Your take-home pay would therefore be lower than if your contract was ‘outside’ IR35. Most contractors are at pains to avoid working ‘inside’ IR35 for these reasons.
At Intouch, our monthly service includes unlimited IR35 advice, risk assessments and fee protection. You’ll have a direct line to your own Personal Accountant who will help you understand your options, make the right decisions for your business and stay compliant. You can read more about IR35 and contracting in our handy guide.
