The IR35 minefield
In simple terms, IR35 is a set of rules that decide if you can class yourself as a contractor, or if you are still an employee. If HMRC decides you’re an employee, you’ll lose the benefits of being a contractor, such as higher take-home pay.
1Stop Accountants will provide you with all the benefits of being a contractor without the IR35 pain. Our IR35 expert accountants will be on hand to advise you on how to conduct your business as a contractor and not be deemed an employee by HMRC. Hence ensuring that you maintain all the benefits of being a contractor without having to worry about IR35 rules.
