Off-Payroll Working Rules

If it is determined that the Intermediaries’ Legislation, known as IR35, applies to any contract, then contractors are required to process a salary of around 75%-85% of company income, with the balance paying the employer NI contribution on the salary and allowable expenses.

Known as the Off-Payroll Working rules, from April 2020 and where contractors are working for medium to large business, it will be the hirers responsibility to process contract payments under PAYE if it is deemed that IR35 would apply to the contract. The difference is that the hirer pays the employer costs as an addition to the contract payment made to limited company contractors.
