IR35 and Tax/NIC Status Advice You and Your Clients can Afford!


IR35 Contract Reviews

Are you looking for the best independent contract review service?

Bauer & Cottrell is pleased to offer the most comprehensive independent contract review service available. Unlike some providers we do not just compare contracts electronically and churn out impersonal reports. We review the contract and the working arrangements and where possible seek to obtain confirmation that there are no conflicting clauses in any of the contracts in the chain. Our unique IR35 contract review service includes negotiation of amendments where appropriate to the written contract. This is exactly what contractors both old and new require and this enables the whole recruitment process to run smoothly and quickly. Giving proper consideration to IR35 status should be the starting point for everyone as it will fundamentally affect how they choose to operate. More importantly you and your clients will be in a better position to establish the tax and NIC liabilities from the outset to enable planning and making appropriate business decisions.

By engaging us as wholly independent providers you can offer support to contractors and your own staff demonstrating that you are not influencing or controlling whether or not a contractor opts for a particular business model or structure which may also protect against any consequential risks from government legislation.

HMRC Enquiries/Tax and Legal Services

*From receipt of the HMRC brown envelope through to full representation at Commissioners Hearings*

Bauer & Cottrell have been working and winning status and IR35 cases for many years. We have never lost a case! If a contractor has taken out insurance through our arrangements with Abbey Tax, Caunce O’Hara or Qdos we will automatically be engaged to work the case. Where no insurance is in place we can represent the contractor from the moment a call or a letter from HMRC wanting to carry out a “routine” review of the records is received. It is absolutely vital to the success of any case to get the right advice immediately. Call us on 01525 406622 for free confidential advice without obligation. Should you decide to appoint us to represent you our fees are fair and fixed and there are no hourly rates or surprises. Cases are worked in 3 phases and the majority of cases are won at phase 2. Please call us for details of how we can help you and your clients.
