Questions asked by suppliers

1. Is the role likely to extend beyond 6 weeks?
This is a discrete piece of work for July/August. It is possible that the role may extend beyond that date
2. Has the role been assessed as inside or outside IR35?
FCO Services ( FCOS ) is a Public Sector organisation. IR35 legislation will apply to FCOS and may apply to off-payroll personnel ( contractors ) who are engaged to provide the service to FCOS through an intermediary. Government guidelines state that an intermediary can be: • Your own limited company • A service or personal service company • A partnership The role itself does not determine whether IR35 shall apply but the type of intermediary the contractor provides the service through. Please advise which of the above applies to the person you intend to provide for this work.
