Questions asked by suppliers

Questions asked by suppliers
Supplier question Buyer answer
1. From 6th April, responsibility for determining if an assignment is within IR35 will shift to the Public Sector organisation. Comparex need to understand the client’s decision on the status of each contract assignment (including extensions) under IR35 and whether a new contractor assignment is deemed ‘Inside’ or ‘Outside’ of IR35 at the beginning of the recruitment process for hiring a contractor. There is an HMRC status portal available to help determine the status but we do require you to post a response as to whether the role is ‘inside’ or ‘outside’. There will not be a definitive answer at this point in time. Our compliancy team have hundreds of contracts to go through and each one is individually assessed.
2. Please could you advise if this falls inside or outside of IR35? Please see above.
