To ensure you have proof of conducting due diligence you can opt to purchase the compliance documents for £49.99 + VAT, which consist of the comprehensive Test Report, Pass Certificate, and Sign off sheet.
This document can then be signed by your client as proof of your Confirmation of Arrangements, maximising your chances of defending any future HMRC investigation.
The Assured Certification route for £149.99 + VAT also includes a check of your contract by a professional IR35 legal expert for your ultimate protection, and a legal assurance letter confirming the opinion on your status.
If you want to understand the reasons for this status result you can either choose the self-service option for £49.99 + VAT or obtain professional legal assistance for £149.99 + VAT.
The comprehensive Test Report contains all the explanation you need to understand why this status decision has been reached.
The Legal Assistance route involves a check by a professional IR35 legal expert who will examine your results and contract and explore whether the contract is an accurate reflection of the working conditions and whether it could potentially be an IR35 pass. If the contract is not an accurate reflection of the actual working conditions, which should fall outside IR35, then a repair option will be recommended – either £50, £100, or a maximum of £200. But note, passing IR35 is not just a paper exercise.
Annual membership provides you with unlimited use of the IR35 assessment tool, together with full tax investigation insurance providing ultimate protection.
Use the service to understand the important factors impacting your IR35 status, and once outside IR35, the documents available demonstrate due diligence has been undertaken and that there are strong pointers indicating IR35 should not apply.
The Due Diligence Documents can be used to confirm your result to agencies and clients with certificates and client sign off sheets.
And if HMRC decide to challenge you, expensive defence costs are covered with comprehensive tax investigation insurance of up to £20,000 to defend your outside IR35 status.
A human expert would typically take 2-3 hours to deliver an assessment, charge hundreds of pounds, and may take up to 5 days turn around time. Our IR35 Reviews are FREE, evaluations take 15 minutes and we are available 24/7.
Our AI-powered IR35 virtual lawyer, Renoir, uses the same approach to determining IR35 status as a tribunal judge, delivering accurate and consistent IR35 evaluations without bias or human error.
Renoir was designed from the ground up, based on all the latest case law, and he accurately predicts the same results as the 21 historic IR35 court cases.
The testing system was originally built in 2009, and has undergone significant fine-tuning and refinement over the past 8 years to ensure it delivers accurate results.
Unlike HMRC's CEST tool, IR35 Testing delivers the correct result for all IR35 court cases.
