IR35 is a key issue for all contractors, so any information that they can gather to help them stay fully informed on the impact it may have is always goingto be extremely useful. So we’re pleased to let you know that ContractorUK has recently updated it’s valuable IR35 Guide.
The exclusive Guide was written by IR35 expert Kate Cottrell, and has been updated to cover the removal of the Business Entity Tests – which werepreviously a key part of the process until they were axed by HMRC last year. It explains how to comply with and navigate through the public sector ‘IR35assurance process’, focusing specifically on contractors – as opposed to the policy note which was published by the Cabinet Office in March 2015, which waswritten for those hiring contractors, and not for the contractors themselves.
This update is designed to explain exactly how the process should work without the Business Entity Tests, but aimed at contractors – using simple and‘non-jargon’ style language to outline the scope of the process and what the implications are for contractors. The new guidance goes far further than theoriginal guide, to help all contractors who are involved in roles where money from the public sector is involved.
If you feel that now is a good time to make the move to contracting, then please call our New Business Team on 01253 362062 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
