IR35 Support

Are you prepared for IR35?

The changes to IR35 will require businesses to take responsibility for determining whether their on-site contractors fall within or outside of scope. Hobson Prior has collaborated with award-winning IR35 experts to provide a solution that simplifies, centralises and enhances this IR35 status determination process.

The biggest complaint from contractors during preparations for IR35 was that they felt their individual circumstances were not taken into account, particularly when companies made blanket decisions to consider all contractors as in-scope.

The Hobson Prior Status Determination Service makes it fast and simple to engage contractors and the elements that will determine their status under IR35. Plus, we can support you in ensuring future vacancies have accurate descriptions regarding IR35.
