Although contractors are ultimately responsible for ensuring their employment status, with the increased activity within HMRC regarding the legislation, agencies are now being required to consider IR35 as well.
Ultimately, having compliant contractors creates a happy working environment all round with less worries and stress to the contractor, which ultimately will help them work more efficiently for the end client.
Showing your own duty of care to your contractors by offering them advice and guidance and to show your understanding of their needs for IR35 compliancy, will also attract a higher calibre of contractors and in turn, clients.
Here are some helpful pointers of what you can do as an agency;
Qdos are always at hand to help with any IR35 queries, and offer IR35 insurance for those contractors who wish to have total peace of mind.
As an agency, you have two sides of the coin to look after, the PSC and the client. A lot of contractors will turn to their agency for advice, particularly if they are just starting out. Having Qdos on board will alleviate this responsibility from you to give you more time to do what you do best.
