Contractors, Personal Service Companies, Agencies and IR35

HMRC are more than aware of the increasingly common practice of an employee terminating his employment with his employers on a Friday, only to return on Monday to continue their work under the guise of a contractor.

More than likely, the ex-employee will trade via the use of a limited company, either providing this personal service directly to his ex-employer or via an agency who act as an intermediary.

To counteract this, HMRC introduced special rules, i.e. the IR35 legislation. If you are caught by this, then the effects are draconian and leave you far worse off than when you were employed directly.

Getting it right from day one is paramount. Contracts must be drawn correctly to reflect the arrangement, and the business vehicle used must be structured properly.
