IR35 and why it is important
Due to changes that were introduced in 2017, if you work directly with the public sector (for example, the NHS), the organisation who are hiring you are responsible for ensuring you are paid in accordance with HMRC regulations.
These changes, known as IR35, seek to provide clarity on your working arrangements and ensure you pay the correct amount of tax and national insurance. In doing so, your role will have been defined as ‘within’ or ‘outside of IR35.
Understanding your IR35 situation is critical in knowing what payment options you have available to you. If you are unsure, you should speak with your employer or agency.
Knowing your IR35 category will allow you to have a clearer idea of what your retained income (or ‘take home pay’) will be, enabling you to negotiate rates with prospective end hirers and recruitment agencies.
We understand your focus is on your work, colleagues and patients. Our payroll options are all designed to make it easy for you to get paid. Our online portal with 24/7 access to all of your information together with on hand support are just some of the reasons why those working in healthcare choose us as their payroll provider.
