What's covered in the IR35 report?

Brookson Legal surveyed 907 UK contractors between during August – September 2020. The report which follows on from last years: Avoiding an IR35 Talent Drain report continues to highlight the importance of auditing your workforce, implementing open communication and review process with your contractors to ensure these skilled workers are retained and your business becomes a beacon for future talent.




Using our experience of assessing IR35 for over 20 years, we have developed an IR35 review service that we believe achieves a fair and accurate result for everyone in the supply chain; allowing for a smoother implementation of the rule changes.

Instead of adopting blanket bans, using HMRC’s much criticised CEST tool or other new and untested automated decision making tools, our service is underpinned by a team of employment law experts who work directly with businesses to help educate them on the complexities of IR35 whilst carrying out a thorough IR35 review. We provide businesses and workers with peace of mind in knowing that we review every role individually and advise on changes to working practices or contracts on any role that may be seen as inside IR35 to achieve a compliant yet more favourable outcome.
