IR35 is two sets of tax legislation that are designed to combat tax avoidance by workers, and the firms hiring them, who are supplying their services to clients via an intermediary, such as a limited company, but who would be an employee if the intermediary was not used.

Previously IR35 only applied to public sector organisations, but now private sector businesses and charities must comply. But if you’re a small business owner, you might be in luck.

A long-standing partner had taken a blanket Inside IR35 approach for all contractors as they felt this was the safest option and were unsure of when a contractor could sit outside IR35.

C4S conducted an assessment of all contract positions and highlighted a cost saving of circa £400,000 over a 6 month period due to a third of the roles being Outside of IR35.

Our partner had previously worked with other suppliers but had not previously come across such an in-depth understanding of the legislation. Not only were they able to save huge amounts on resource spending, but from the process, they learnt key information which has enabled them to make better resourcing decisions moving forward.
