Employer guidance


IR35 checks (for tax purposes) are necessary to find out if a potential employee really is an independent contractor or do they work in a manner that is consistent with a deemed employment relationship.  There is a legal obligation for the potential employer to make this IR35 determination taking reasonable care, since April 2017.

The Intermediaries Legislation, also known as IR35, is a specific set of HMRC rules governing the treatment of Income Tax and National Insurance contributions that applies to individuals who work through their own limited company or, in some cases, a partnership.
