Add a comprehensive contract review for only £60.00

If you are in any doubt as to the validity of your contract, especially in light of IR35 legislation, a contract review can help. It will provide you a clear explanation of your status in the eyes of the HMRC and help determine whether you are working Inside IR35 or Outside IR35.

The contract review is available at the reduce price of £60.00 only when purchased with the tax enquiry and legal expenses policy. Call 0333 321 1403 for further details.


Why do I need a contract review?

With HMRC focusing on private sector contractors this financial year it is essential that you ensure your contract fits within IR35 legislation.

A contract review will check that clauses in your contract are compliant and that your working practices follow terms and conditions in your contract.

The contract review, when concluded by tax experts, will give you an IR35 “pass” or “fail”.

You will receive a report which considers both the contractual terms and working practices based on case law and an unbiased, independent opinion which could save you thousands of pounds if HMRC do start an enquiry.
