Specialist insurances and IR35 advice
Every contract has its own IR35 position, and it only takes one contract to be deemed inside IR35 when it was thought to be outside to be caught and go through a costly process of paying back what HMRC deem to be owed in back tax, interest and penalties. Having each contract reviewed is vital in being proactive and ensuring the correct IR35 status is ascertained in advance of a potential HMRC enquiry.

No contract at all?
And finally, for those contractors that think that by not having a written contract in place means they are exempt from being caught inside IR35 then they need to think again. HMRC can, and will likely conclude a ‘hypothetical contract’ based on the working arrangements they deem are in place between the contractor and the end client, which will likely be found to be inside of IR35.
