Contractor IR35

03 May, 2010

All contractors who do not meet the Inland Revenue’s definition of ‘self employment’ are affected by IR35 legislation.  A Contractor’s IR35 status needs to be carefully considered.

If contractors are operating in the ways listed below, they are unlikely to be deemed self employed and they will fall under the IR35 legislation.

  1. If the contractor travels to the same workplace every day
  2. If the contractor has only one current contract
  3. If the contractor is paid by the hour or by the day
  4. If the contractor does not require their own software, tools or equipment
  5. If the contractor is not financially liable to rectify faults or errors
  6. If the contractor has no right of substitution
  7. If the contractor works under day to day management of the client
