Contractors & IR35 status
If you provide services through a limited company you may be affected IR35. This legislation is designed to determine whether or not you should pay tax and national insurance as an employee. It is a complicated part of law with many grey areas so we can help you navigate these issues and what you can do to mitigate your risks.
As well as making sure your new business gets off to the best start, we can help with your day-to-day accounting needs. Our team can also advise you on:
