Alexander is a barrister of 20 years’ standing and for a number of years has specialised in personal taxation and employment issues.
We provide independent and expert reviews of contracts for individuals, agencies and client companies in the off-payroll work sector; particularly contractors and consultants, to provide a definitive view of worker engagements in respect of IR35.
By specialising in this discrete area, we can provide you with the full support of a full legal opinion from a barrister at a fraction of the cost of instructing a barrister through your advisers.
The services provided are regulated by the Bar Standards Board and indemnified by the Bar Mutual Indemnity Fund under current standard terms of cover.
IR35 is a difficult area of law. It used to be for the contractor to decide whether IR35 applied or not. Now, in the public sector, the engaging client decides. We expect that this will be rolled-out to the private sector imminently. Your experience of the public sector will tell you what to expect when that happens.
Some providers can give you the opinion of an “industry expert”. We offer you the written opinion of a barrister.
When you need a competitive edge, to engage in a genuinely compliant self-employed basis, we can provide you and your client with the assurance you need to continue your business.
