The third in the series on IR35, we look at insurance.

Are you protected?

HMRC has stated that they will issue their determination requiring the unpaid PAYE tax and National Insurance contribution liabilities, including any late payment fines and interest to be paid by the end hirer.

On top of those liabilities and fines, HMRC have the discretion to issue a penalty up to 100% of the initial outstanding liability, so it's incredibly important to ensure you’re covered.

Does your insurance cover IR35?

When partnering with YunoJuno’s IR35 Management tool you can be safe in the knowledge that you have IR35 insurance that includes:

  • £100,000 legal defence cover & £100,000 taxes, interest and penalties.
