IR35: The Locum Solution

The intricacies of IR35 cannot be explained in a matter of words, sentences, paragraphs or even pages. It is much more complex than that; the legislation lacks clarity. If you are not aware of what IR35 is and its potential impact, we would really advise to check out the legislation in more detail as it will no doubt have huge ramifications in the optical industry.

For those that have an understanding of it, we are sure you can agree it will be very blurred in distinguishing whether some is actually self-employed or in fact a “disguised employee”.  Our thoughts are confusion over what is what will certainly rein for a long period.

In a nutshell, the reason for its introduction is to stop workers fraudulently claiming expenses and gaining tax benefits
