IR35 is the common name for the Intermediaries Legislation, which is designed to combat tax avoidance. The legislation is targeted at individuals who are providing services through their own limited companies or partnerships and who may not be paying the tax that they should be.
The legislation should be of huge concern to all contractors; the financial ramifications of falling foul of IR35 can be significant so it is vital that everyone understands how it works.
First issued in 2000, IR35 targets those workers considered in the eyes of the HMRC to be ‘disguised employees’. Contractors, being technically self-employed, are not taxed in the same way as average employees, taking dividends from their company and paying far less in National Insurance Contributions. Because of this, HMRC are keen to ensure that those working as contractors (and paying less tax) are indeed genuinely in business on their own account, and are not working in the same way they would have been if employed directly by their client.
IR35 compliance starts with your contract, and continues with your working practices with your end client. Not only does having a professional review of these provide you with a professional opinion on your IR35 status helping you to pay your taxes correctly, but it may reduce your penalties if caught by the legislation, showing that you have taken due care and attention in ascertaining your status. We can also now offer a legal review of your contract to ascertain the individual risks your business faces from a legal perspective.
