IR35 CONTRACT REVIEWS

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

Reviewing the contractual terms and agreements used for engaging off-payroll workers is the first step in the journey to IR35 compliance.

We like to keep the process simple, offering our expert IR35 team to help you assess the compliance of your contractual terms. This service is perfect for helping employment businesses and intermediaries adapt and prepare for the IR35 private sector reform and the changes it brings with it.

WHAT DOES AN IR35 CONTRACT REVIEW INCLUDE?

An IR35 Contract Review from Qdos includes:

  • An in-depth report of the written terms of a contract
  • A detailed review of the key tests used to determine IR35 status
  • Commentary on all IR35 relevant clauses
  • Suggestions to improve terms for IR35 compliance
  • Re-review of revised terms subject to suggested amendments

WHY DO I NEED AN IR35 CONTRACT REVIEW?

As of 6th April 2021, it will no longer be the contractor’s responsibility to determine their IR35 status – the responsibility for determining IR35 status will shift to the end client.

When a worker is onboarded, there should already be an indication as to whether they fall inside or outside of IR35 and the contractual terms issued as a result must reflect this status, therefore having a compliant contract is imperative for ongoing compliance.

TAILORED MODEL CONTRACTS

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

We can create a range of tailored model contracts, such as contracts between your business and suppliers, or contracts for engaging with independent contractors, and terms of business that are bespoke for you and your business, ensuring your resulting agreements are legally sound and where relevant, IR35 compliant as well.

Subject to a discussion about your business needs and desired outcomes, a member of our team will endeavour to make sure those requirements are met. Our team has the experience required to turn your bespoke requirements into a commercially realistic and accurately drafted contract.

Once this first draft has been achieved, it does not end there. If you feel certain areas need some work or don’t quite capture what you were looking for, our team will liaise closely with you to make sure the end product meets every requirement and is perfect for your business.

CONTRACT MAINTENANCE

In addition to contract drafting, we also provide a contract maintenance service. Any terms originally provided by us will be regularly reviewed and kept up to date. To ensure that your contracts continue to be legally sound, your business should view this as an ongoing process keeping in mind amendments to relevant laws and regulations. While this contract maintenance is undertaken, we also take time to consider the contract’s IR35 standing where it is relevant to do so.

BUSINESS TERMS REVIEW

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

This review is intended for those who already have terms of business in place, or those who have been provided with a new set of terms to be entered into by a third party.

We focus on highlighting areas of concern regarding the legality of your terms and conditions, therefore limiting your business’ exposure to risks and/or liabilities. A member of our expert team will dedicate the time to explain the intention behind unclear clauses and point out potential pitfalls within the document. They may also suggest, where relevant, amendments to clauses that you may wish to request in order to have a more rounded contract in place.

It is not only the business terms that are important, we take into account your business as a whole, making sure that you have a comprehensive understanding of any potential risks and liabilities surrounding your business terms. By doing so, you are better placed to negotiate amendments to documentation and therefore ensure that your business has the protection it requires.

AD HOC CONTRACT CONSULTANCY SERVICES

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

If you are looking for something a little more specific and/or niche, such as advice on individual contract clauses, we also offer consultancy on an ad hoc basis. Allowing you to liaise directly with a member of the relevant team, they can help you work through any specific queries and concerns. The real focus here is that we take everything into consideration and provide you with answers that are applicable to your situation, ensuring your needs are met effectively.
