    What is IR35?

    HMRC introduced IR35 (the ‘off-payroll working rules’ or 'the intermediaries' legislation') in 2000 to tackle what it calls 'disguised’ employment to combat tax avoidance. IR35 was brought about to ensure contractors pay the same levels of tax and national insurance contributions as an equivalent employee who is broadly doing a similar role. It applies to individuals who work through an intermediary like a Personal Service Company/Partnership/etc. providing services to an end client and when the reality of the relationship is such that they would be ordinarily classed as an employee of that end client if the intermediary was not in place.
