The IR35 Contractor Checker helps to assess the impact of the April 2020 changes to IR35 for companies who employ contractors. The IR35 Contractor Checker guides users through an interactive questionnaire to help determine the impact of the April 2020 changes to IR35. The tool can be easily adapted and customized to different industries and contractor types. The tool also determines ‚Äď based on a sophisticated risk logic model ‚Äď the employment status of a contractor under the new regulation.

Background

Under the new off-payroll working rules, due to be implemented from April 2020, the duty of complying with the off-payroll working rules shifts from the individual contractors and their PSCs to the businesses that engage the services of contractors. 

The new rules mandate these businesses are now responsible for: ‚Äč 

  • deciding whether the new rules apply to a contractor; and ‚Äč 
  • deducting the employment taxes and National Insurance contributions of the contractor. ‚Äč 

The IR35 Contractor Checker enables companies to quickly establish if they are affected by the changes. Moreover, it enables the affected companies to quickly identify the tasks required to ensure the company is compliant and complete the required determinations for engaged contractors.
