Have you decided what you plan to do to address the contractor tax changes next April?
Some options work better than others
Take advice from your accountant… Outsource your decision making process… Decide not to use company contractors ever again… Use HMRC’s online CEST tool to assess employment status…Hire in a contract review service… Take out IR35 insurance… Push all contractors through an umbrella company… etc, etc, etc.
What three things do these options have in common?
- all involve risk, some more unacceptable than others
- none provide a 360 degree view of the issues and options
- none involve obtaining independent legal advice from qualified specialists who have been working within the recruitment sector for 22 years.
