The Complete Contracting Solution

IF Payroll are in the envious position of being able to support our clients entire IR35 needs.

IR35 PRO advises and directs enterprise clients on how they must adapt their contract talent engagement processes to correctly align with the off-payroll (IR35) laws. During the run in to the abandoned April 2020 reforms it was obvious how naïve and unprepared our clients were for these changes.

Our Umbrella services, accredited under the Professional Passport banner, ensures the tax affairs of contractors inside IR35 are managed effectively and professionally.
