Do you have any SME contractors, that are vital to your organisation for the immediate future, but who are not prepared to go FTC or permanent?
The IR35 myth………its not new.
IR35 has been around since 1999, its not a new regulation only starting from April 2021, the change is that the liability is being moved from the contractor to the hiring organisation by HRMC, a clever move to shift the potential fines and liability to global organisations (who don’t need bad press…)
Our solutions at APS provide organisations IR35 compliant engagements. Many of our clients have SME’s they wish to retain or hire who will not operate inside IR35 as they are not disguised employees, this is a huge risk to inflight projects as they are normally experts delivering bespoke items of work. That then begs the question, why are they inside?……I’ve had many a conversation on this subject for the last 18 months.
APS as a boutique consultancy business rather than a recruitment agency, has been providing our Wealth and Asset Manager clients with a solution to the impact of IR35 on mission critical projects. We are delivering work on an agreed outcomes basis for a fixed price, thus operating outside of IR35. We work with our clients to agree deliverables and timescales and then take on responsibility for achieving these outcomes. This has proved to be an attractive and de-risked solution for our clients.
Additionally we offer an inside solution for your organisation, we either use our current permanent employees to deliver the work or we can place your contractors into APS on a PAYE basis (agreed day rate on a zero hours contract) who get paid for the days they work and we only deduct the tax due on the payslip (we don’t add any additional umbrella charges to the individuals).
Lastly we take on the delivery and ownership, providing replacement resources for both outside and inside of IR35 consulting engagements, partnering with your organisations and our consultants.
So are you really ready?
