Since 6th April 2021, it is the responsibility of the end-client to assess the ‘off-payroll’ or IR35 status of their temporary workforce.



Supporting you to be IR35 compliant

Since 6th April 2021, ‘end employers’ (you) are responsible for assessing contractors’ tax status. All roles, working practices and contracts must be evaluated. Incorrect assessments could lead to PAYE tax and Employers National Insurance Contributions liability.

We work closely with all our clients to advise them of the best route to take for their business. Most of our clients take one of these approaches:

  1. Conduct assessments on each contract role and provide us with an IR35 status determination

  2. Explore other routes of engagement, such as Statement of Work, blended or retained solutions

  3. Adopt a blanket approach, stating a policy of not engaging with any contractors that utilise PSCs

In partnership with our sister company, Project Partners, we can offer solutions to mitigate the effects of IR35 and help you become IR35 savvy. From knowledge transfer to taking the problem away entirely, we have the right solution for you.



We’ve got all your options covered!

We support all our UK contractors to make sure you are aware of your options and continue to secure the best opportunities. For all roles we advertise, we tell you if it’s inside or outside IR35. If you’re inside IR35, we walk you through your payment options via your Limited Company (PSC), Hydrogen’s PAYE Scheme or an Umbrella Company PAYE Scheme, using one of the five companies on our PSL.
