What is IR35

How will IR35 affect you

New IR35 legislation will be rolled out across the private sector on Monday 6th April 2020

The main provision of IR35 is for the purposes of ensuring that contractors pay the right about of tax, by defining if a person is a genuine contractor rather than a ‘disguised’ employee.

The key change after the 6th April 2020 is that it will now be the responsibility of the client rather than the contractor to define the person's IR35 status. After this date the client will be liabile for any penalities incurred for incorrectly defining a contractor's status. 


At Empiric we are supporting customers with IR35 issues and providing client solutions to ensure full compliance with the change in law. Working in partnership with you, we identify different options that you can take (e.g. should certain workers be classified as In or Out), provide compliant solutions and pinpoint areas to become cost-effective in the wake of the change.

With a process focussed on assessment, definition and engagement, we can thoroughly review all work processes to provide a clear path of recommendations from the inside and outside.
