IR35 has had a profound effect on the contract market in the Public Sector since the changes implemented in April 2017. Proposed government legislation, scheduled to come into force in April 2020, will see the legislation rolled out to the private sector. Private sector organisations can save significant sums of money by preparing for the changes in legislation. At IR35 Compliance, we have solutions that can help you ensure that your organisation is ready to meet these changes and gain a competitive advantage over those that don’t proactively prepare.
The Silver Service is an eight-week engagement that sets your organisation on the path to becoming IR35 compliant. Your dedicated consulting team will assess your organisation for compliance and then provide bespoke strategies to start your journey towards IR35 compliance. We will provide your organisation with the knowledge and strategies of IR35; facilitating your organisations commencement of its journey towards IR35 compliance.
The Silver Service is aimed at more complex organisations that have more varied ways of working across departments and prefer to implement new strategies with limited assistance from outside consultants. The Service begins collaboratively as nobody knows your organisation like you but then allows you to implement your bespoke strategies at a pace that suits your organisation. Your IR35 Compliance team will initially work closely with you to create IR35 Compliance strategies that are bespoke for your organisation.
