We offer a comprehensive list of hiring options to ensure both our clients and contractors can continue to work successfully in a manner that suits them, whether the assignment is deemed inside or outside IR35. See options below.
A statement of work (SoW) ensures any contractor required to operate on an "outside" IR35 basis, has a robust commercial contract to measure and track performance against.
Utilise a reliable insurance-backed solution with tax liability cover. Your role would be assessed at the outset, then re-assessed at regular intervals to ensure compliance.
Umbrella / Payroll
Umbrella companies provide contractors with full employment rights, all statutory benefits; ultimately, a contractor is an employee of its chosen umbrella company.
Getting your role determined
First things first, you must confirm the IR35 status of an assignment by providing a ‘Status Determination Statement’ (SDS).
There are a number of online tools available to help you determine the status, such as HMRC's CEST (Check Employment Status for Tax), which presents a series of questions to help determine employment status (find out more here) However, it's been widely agreed that the determination can be challenged.
