The second in the series on IR35, we look at payments for contracts inside IR35.
Managing payments appropriately
From April 6th, if a contract is deemed ‘Inside IR35’ you will be responsible for deducting all appropriate taxes at source and passing them through to HMRC. It is imperative that you have the right tools and processes in place to make this as seamless as possible and keep your business on the right side of HMRC’s guidelines.
There are a number of ways to manage an inside IR35 payment.
- Put the freelancer on your payroll - this creates a lot of internal hassle and adds to head count.
- Ask them to go via an Umbrella company - you need to do your due diligence on the umbrella company, are they compliant. And you could be reducing your talent pool.
- Work with a compliant payment partner who can ensure all deductions are made and passed to HMRC whilst the freelancer still works via their PSC.
It can be a minefield, but you must ensure you have a compliant method for deducting tax at source and passing it through to HRMC.
