Due care and Diligence

Part of the responsibility when determining IR35 is proving that an employer has taken due care in the process. From April 2021, private sector businesses will be responsible for determining the employment status of any Personal Service Company (PSC) or intermediary they engage with.

For private sector companies to be able to continue attracting independent workers in years to come, they should ensure they are in a position to make accurate IR35 decisions well before reform actually arrives.

Companies offering transparency and clarity will be better placed when the changes are introduced. In short, the sooner businesses start reviewing the status of the independent workers they already engage, the better.

Redline's Status Determination Tool which is powered by Kingsbridge Contractor Insurance can assist in an accurate determination quickly, correctly and fairly.
