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

End Clients

Do you engage the services of contractors (as self-employed or with limited companies) directly or through agencies?

If you can answer yes for the present or for any period in the last six years we can help you to understand the tax/NIC legislation affecting you and any other party in the chain. This will help you to properly consider appropriate risks and to have in place access to our support services in the event that you are required by HMRC to provide information or to attend Commissioners or Court Hearings in respect of the status of past, present or future contractors.

Bauer & Cottrell have been providing independent specialist consultancy services on tax and NIC employment status and associated legislation for many years and long before the inception of IR35. We enjoy excellent relationships with all stakeholders in the contracting market place. Each and every week we deal with hundreds of contractors, recruitment agencies, employment businesses, end clients and officers of HMRC. We offer a tailored independent support service to contractors, agencies and end clients ranging from a status/IR35 review of contracts and working arrangements through to full representation in the event of an HMRC investigation into their IR35 status. We have never lost a case!


Whether you are a large, medium or small company with or without your own in house expertise Bauer & Cottrell can help you to put in place written contracts that accurately reflect the terms and conditions upon which you wish to engage contractors, advise you on potential risks and be available to support you and your staff in the event of an HMRC status investigation. Such investigations are often contentious and can take many months and in some cases years to resolve. To get employment status right at the outset will save money, time and above all inconvenience and stress in the future.
