Manage compliance with the off-payroll working rules (IR35) with Qdos' Status Review - the only fully comprehensive IR35 compliance service

IR35 STATUS REVIEW

Status Review is an independent alternative to HMRC’s Check Employment Status For Tax tool (CEST) for a fair and compliant approach to managing IR35 reform

Status Review is much more than just an IR35 tool. It is a complete compliance service which provides an online portal for managing IR35 reform, combining case-by-case assessments with a management system for recruitment agencies and end clients engaging contractors under the off-payroll working rules. The system can be applied to both public sector and private sector (IR35 reform will be extended to the private sector from April 2021 – read more about the IR35 changes)

The system has enabled over 2,200 recruitment agencies and end clients to minimise the disruption of the rules, comply with the legislation, provide a fair opinion for their contractors, and insure the risks involved. Key to Status Review is the unrivalled Qdos IR35 expertise and experience that you benefit from. Read our customer stories to find out more.

COVER THE RISKS WITH IR35 INSURANCE

QDOS COMMERCIAL SERVICES PROVIDING YOUR BUSINESS WITH THE TOOLS AND RESOURCES TO MANAGE IR35 CHANGES IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR

Qdos currently insures over 15,000 contractors for their tax risks, and with the introduction of the IR35 reform, Qdos further developed its pioneering Tax Liability Cover to cover the fee-payer in the contractual chain.

The fee-payer can be provided with the option to insure any ‘outside IR35’ assessment results with Qdos. The policy has been designed to extend to the client in any event of them being reclassified as the fee-payer, giving further peace of mind and protection.

The policy covers two core elements:

  • Cover for professional fees in the defence of a status enquiry
  • Cover for tax/NI liabilities, interest, and penalties if the contractors are found to be inside IR35
