IR35

Working in close collaboration with a number of our key partners, Brookson Legal Services (the only SRA accredited law firm specialising in IR35), Lawspeed (who drafted the UK’s first IR35 friendly contract) , Larsen Howie and Kingsbridge Contractor Insurance Group we have gained an in-depth understanding of the proposed changes and have developed a number of tailored IR35 solutions for our clients:

IR35 Contractor Audits

Working in conjunction with Brookson Legal Services we can work closely with you to assess whether your existing contractor population are likely to fall in or outside IR35 from April 2021 (or whether in the right circumstances they can be outside IR35).

Engaging Contractors outside IR35

We can work with you to establish working practices that will ensure that existing and future contractors fall outside IR35 when they can legitimately do so.

Working with one of our expert IR35 assessment partners we can help you assess each contractor engagement efficiently and cost effectively without significant management overhead.

We will provide all parties with industry-leading outside IR35 contracts provided by Lawspeed that will reflect these arrangements and protect you from any future tax liabilities.

When an outside IR35 status determination is made by one of an approved panel of third-party assessment companies we will then insure all parties in the supply chain with Kingsbridge IR35 Contractor Insurance for added peace of mind.

This insurance provides up to £100,000 of legal cover and £100,000 of tax liability insurance for per contractor per annum and which insures all parties in the supply chain for any potential liabilities (the end client, the consultancy, the agency and the contractor themselves).

Transitioning inside IR35 engagements to properly tax compliant solutions

We will identify any contractors who will fall inside IR35 at an early stage and will work with them all individually to ensure they are properly informed about their situation; that they understand why they fall within IR35 and provide them with assistance in finding a fully compliant solution where they are properly taxed at source, and you would be fully protected from any future tax liabilities.

Contractor Workforce Transformation with William Alexander Consulting

We can remove all potential client tax liabilities entirely by engaging Contract Associates via William Alexander Consulting. Unlike some alternative agency offerings, this is not recruitment dressed up under an ‘SoW’. Instead we provide our clients with a genuinely ‘fully contracted-out service’ (as defined by HMRC), whereby William Alexander become both the “hirer” and the “fee-payer”.

William Alexander Consulting then engage the very best contractors in the marketplace by being able to offer them genuinely outside IR35 working arrangements, contracts and third-party IR35 Status Determination Statements with each party in the supply chain insured by Kingsbridge contractor insurance.

Using this solution, you continue to benefit from being able to access the best resources available in the contract market at a lower cost than the rate increase needed to hire the same resource on an inside IR35 basis.

You would also benefit from many of the advantages of engaging a traditional consultancy, such as budgetary flexibility, shared risk, and increased governance and reporting but without many of the common disadvantages – and at a far lower cost.
