Legal & compliance
The IR35 legislation can be a complex area of tax law. If it is not considered appropriately, it can put your business at risk. Whether you are an end client, a consultancy, contractor or agency, we can help. Our team can assist with not only a full review of the IR35 status, but also identify all of your off-payroll workers including the type of pay model, where they’re based and who’s supplying them.
Our team has experience in advising on outsourced arrangements. We can offer advice on Statement of Work (SOW), Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) and Master or Neutral Vendor arrangements structured under a Managed Services Agreement where second tier or preferred suppliers are involved in the supply chain to secure talent.
Even with the best planning, disputes can arise and contracts need to be reviewed to clarify key points to both or all parties. We have an open an honest approach which helps us mediate where applicable, or simply provide advice to the party who appoints us. We can assist with drafting and negotiating any recruitment related contract, including: agency terms, consultancy terms and umbrella terms.
Statement of Work
A Statement of Work (SOW) is a workforce solution appropriate for project-based work. It allows end clients to engage with a consultancy or agency under a Master Services Agreement (MSA). The MSA governs the legal framework agreed between the parties.
Our team understands the different approaches to outsourcing along with the benefits and risks associated with a SOW. We can advise on all aspects of the SOW lifecycle. From risk assessments to ensuring that the model is appropriate for your business, through to drafting the MSA and SOW(s). Our legal experts can also assist in negotiations and advising on exit provisions.Discover more
