The forthcoming changes to the off-payroll working rules (IR35) are a tricky area to manoeuvre.
At our most recent Senior Counsel series of events which focused on IR35, subject matter experts from LexisNexis, Taxation Magazine, Radius Law and from F-Lex legal, we were able to provide concerned in-house counsel with a place to learn more about the changes, share experiences and ask questions.
Our blog post ‘IR35 myth busting! 8 essential and practical tips for in-house counsel’ shares the key take-outs from the event.
In addition to the learnings from the event, our team has also created a raft of resources to support organisations navigate the complexities of IR35 below.

Does a contractor who falls within IR35 then become entitled to rights under the agency worker regulations?
Rights under the Agency Worker Regulations 2010 depend on whether the worker in question falls within the definition of ‘agency worker’ in those Regulations. For further information on that definition, and the implications of protection under the Regulations, see Practice Note: Rights under the Agency Workers Regulations 2010 and Practice Note: Agency worker status.
Does a contractor who falls within IR35 then become a worker for employment protection purposes?
As with the IR35 regime generally, where the off-payroll IR35 regime applies, it operates for income tax and NICs purposes only. The legislation does not confer wider employment status on the individual and accordingly the individual does not accrue employment rights with the end client or any other third party in the relevant contractual chain.
However, the usual status tests will still apply. For further information, see Practice Notes: Worker status and Employee status.
