IR35 Training Course

IR35 rules have extended to apply to all medium-large enterprises. Any medium-large company that receives an external contractor or consultant services has the responsibility to assess whether it falls within the scope of the IR35 rules.

IR35 is a tax law otherwise known as the off-payroll working rules. These rules are designed to prevent tax avoidance by personal service companies (PSCs).

Our IR35 Course explains what falls under IR35 and how you can implement the necessary procedures to comply with the rules in medium to large businesses.
