As of April 2021, the Government is introducing new legislation relating to off-payroll labour in the private sector.
Currently, the responsibility lies wholly with us to ensure that the IR35 rules are reviewed and the correct tax treatment is applied. From April 2021, it will be the responsibility of our clients to review the employment status of each consultant.
We understand the legislation and guide our clients through it to ensure compliance. Before each engagement we sit with our clients and use market leading tools to determine IR35 status. We do this for every assignment. This is then written into the contract and reviewed periodically to ensure working practices match.
Our clients engage us as we bring essential Change Management and Programme Management experience and expertise to their organisation. We lead and guide our clients and take the necessary steps needed to ensure the assignments outcomes are delivered – A key part of the legislation.
While we know in some cases our clients want a specific individual to deliver the assignment, we always ensure that a substitute from our network is available as backup to deliver the project should it be needed.
