Title: How do I keep my contractors outside IR35?
Summary: It’s easy to see why many limited company contractors feel that their livelihoods are in danger. It’s up to you, as the recruiter or end-client, to maintain communication and transparency throughout the supply chain; this is absolutely key to ensuring contracting remains a viable option for highly skilled workers and businesses like yours post-April 2020.

Title: How NOT to let IR35 ruin your business
Summary: You’re probably already aware of the changes to IR35 that are coming in from April 2020. Organisations like yours who use contractors are going to be responsible for making complex employment status determinations on all engagements with ‘off-payroll workers”. If you get those determinations wrong, there are commercial and legal risks, as well as regulatory ones.

NO NEED TO PANIC

Summary: There’s simply no need for the end-client to make panicked, knee-jerk and risk-averse decisions – or for agencies to worry about being stung by a tax bill.

Title: IR35: Time for the private sector to get its house in order?
Summary:  Genuinely self-employed contractors are deemed to be outside, but if you are considered inside IR35, HMRC expects you (and your employer) to pay the same tax and NI contributions as other, permanent employees.

Title: IR35 Status Determination
Summary: It all boils down to the contract. Whether the contract is judged to be inside or outside IR35 would determine whether or not a Contractor would end up paying tax as an employee.

NEWS

Title: Why culling contractors isn’t a risk-free solution to IR35
Summary: When looked at from a distance, it appears that a pattern has been set by these private sector giants. RBS has been the only exception thus far that has publicly pledged to take ‘reasonable care’ to keep their contractors – however, it’s the minority in this case that’s got it right.

SMALL COMPANIES EXEMPTION

Title: Off-payroll (IR35) – the ‘small company’ exemption – problems lie ahead
Summary: When the ‘off-payroll’ IR35 rules are extended to the private sector in April 2020, ‘small companies’ will be excluded as things currently stand. However, the exclusion itself may cause more complications for clients to deal with.
