We’re here to help with IR35

Navigating legislation changes can be complex and challenging, so our IR35 experts are on hand to help you avoid and/or manage the following:

  • Escalating costs

    Significant cost rises resulting from additional tax and pay rate increases to contractor workforce

  • Retention and attraction challenges

    Difficulty to retain/attract contractors for ‘inside’ IR35 roles

  • Increased supply chain risk

    Liability from agency can pass back up to client. Added vigilance required in agency engagement and need to review supplier strategy

  • Increased tax risk

    Liability rests with client unless they can show reasonable care in making assessment

  • Project delays and cancellations

    Due to cost increases and access to contractor resource

  • Increased use of “alternative arrangements”

    Many contractors and clients moved to statement of work solutions
