Contractor Guide to IR35 Reform

From April 2020, contractors will no longer be responsible for determining their IR35 status unless you
are engaged by a company classed as small according to the Companies Act 2006.

Contractors found to fall inside of IR35 will be required to have PAYE and NICs deducted at source from their income – the responsibility of this will fall to the fee-payer which will usually be the end client business or the recruitment agency depending on the contractual chain.

Due to the nature of the rules, there is very little that contractors can do, however there are steps you can take to ease the process as best you can:

  • Speak to your client and agency ahead of reform
  • Understand your rights and minimum contract rates
  • Review your status and maintain a record of evidence

Download the guide to IR35 reform for more information about what you can do ahead of reform, as well as tips for avoiding schemes, the answers to frequently asked questions, the truth about contractors joining forces to avoid IR35, and payments under the rules.
