Legal services for Corporates
Corporate legal & compliance
Supporting end clients through the future workforce.
Workforce agility has become a fundamental pillar of the way we all do business. The impacts of global pandemics, climate change, supply chain disruption and more affects every business whether small or large and from consumer goods to business services.
With many businesses adverse to risk, putting contractors inside IR35 seems an obvious solution. But by doing so, you could be restricting your access to the contingent talent pool. We can help review your options while ensuring you are fulfilling all necessary requirements. Our services include supply chain auditing & compliance and all round IR35 support.
Supporting corporate clients
Even with the best planning, disputes can arise and contracts need to be reviewed to identify key risks to the 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.
Compliance should be considered a priority, now more so than ever. With IR35 under the spotlight of investigations with HMRC and the ever-looming presence of the Criminal Finances Act 2017, supply chain compliance and due diligence procedures should be at the forefront of all parties within the supply chain. We can offer advice on CFA, IR35 and supply chain / umbrella audits.
IR35 for end clients
Subject to any relevant exemptions, the responsibility for determining whether a contractor’s assignment is inside or outside IR35 transferred from the contractor to the end client who receives the contractor’s services.
It is important to understand your party’s responsibilities and liabilities in respect to IR35 within the contractor supply chain.
Delivering status determination statements
A status determination statement (SDS) should be issued for every assignment and a copy held by all parties. There are a number of areas to be considered, and while a larger company may have the skills in-house to issue the SDS using reasonable care, smaller companies would be advised to seek external counsel to ensure they comply with HMRC guidelines.
