Chart your own path with our
expert-authored IR35 Action Planner
Our IR35 Action Planner not only provides an authoritative, yet accessible, explanation of IR35, but also helps you establish a long term IR35 strategy for your business.
Our IR35 Action Planner is packed with exclusive videos, articles, podcasts, checklists and resources to help you successfully navigate the single biggest change impacting service businesses in a decade.
As well as helping you develop your strategy, you’ll also find practical day-to-day tips and a series of tactical plans to help you overcome common problems when engaging with end clients.
Audit your working practices and challenge a status determination with confidence.
If your end client is determining your IR35 status, it’s more important than ever to review, optimise and audit your working practices. Our tools facilitate productive conversations with clients, supporting them to engage with your business with confidence.
Look through your client’s eyes with our unique working practice assessment tool
Your starting point is our exclusive and innovative working practice assessment tool.
It’s designed to allow you to look through your client’s (and HMRC’s) eyes and evaluate your contract and working practices. As you work through the comprehensive, lawyer-approved questions, you’ll build up a real-time view of your strengths and risk areas.
Unlike other status tools, it isn’t designed to give you a simple ‘pass/fail’ verdict. It’s designed to increase your knowledge and understanding, and to allow you to improve your working practices.
Understand HMRC’s opinion by comparing CEST determinations to employment law
HMRC’s employment status tool, CEST, is not without controversy, but it can be difficult to articulate exactly where its weaknesses are.
If your end client is using CEST, it is essential that you are able to engage in an informed discussion about the potential pitfalls of your CEST assessment.
Our working practice assessment tool solves this by providing you with two simultaneous views: one showing a wide range of factors from case law, whilst the second shows the bias of CEST factors.
This allows you to instantly identify the gaps between your CEST determination and employment status case law, giving you the confidence to open up discussions with your clients.
Gather evidence and use our lawyer-approved emails to challenge determinations
If you need to challenge your IR35 status with your client, it’s essential that you are prepared and confident as you enter this process.
Our working practice assessment tool allows you to enter supporting evidence, so you can demonstrate and justify the reason for your dispute to your client. What’s more, you can print or create a professional PDF of your assessment to serve as a comprehensive starting point for your challenge.
We even have a series of email templates written by an employment lawyer, allowing you to start the status challenge process with professional confidence.
Improve your working practices and ensure the continued compliance of your business
If your current assignment is deemed outside IR35, it’s essential that you continue to implement best practices, and don’t fall into bad habits. Many end clients are undertaking both regular and spot audits to ensure suppliers remain compliant.
That’s why you can set reminders in the app to complete regular reviews of your working practices, meaning you’re prepared, should your engagement be audited.
Our service includes unlimited working practice assessments, meaning you can regularly review your business operations. This way, you can ensure you’re in the best possible position to engage with future clients outside IR35.
