An IR35 Accountant from The Kelvin Partnership
What is IR35?
IR35, which is also known as “intermediate legislation,” is an important aspect to consider when ensuring a contractor is paying their tax correctly. IR35 legislation is in place so that HMRC can seek out those who are avoiding tax.
There are many people who try and avoid income tax and national insurance contributions by disguising themselves and declaring to HMRC that they are supplying a service via an intermediary (a limited company or partnership). This limited company will often only have one employee and a secretary who is more than likely going to be a relative. It is the purpose of IR35 to find these people who are wrongly declaring themselves as contractors in order to better their tax situation.
Why is Important for Contractors to Use an IR35 Accountant?
Many accountants are not specialised in dealing with matters of IR35 legislation. It is therefore vital that contractors find an accountant that can handle their tax situation properly to avoid HMRC penalties and potential investigations.
When you begin to operate as a contractor you have to find out your position in relation to IR35. If you are considered to be an employee in the eyes of HMRC you will be required to make a deemed payment, as well as not being able to claim some expenses. A deemed payment should be paid at the end of the tax year, it will account for any tax and national insurance contributions. To prove yourself as an operating contractor and not a disguised employee, you will need to provide your accountant with sufficient paperwork in order for them to sort out your taxes effectively.
