IR35 SDS contracts

Would any one be able to give me any advice on IR35 SDS contracts? It isn't something my organisation has had to deal with before and I'd really appreciate some guidance. If not, can anyone recomend a contact who could advise?

Thank you in advance :)

  • Hi Lorna,

    I am currently engaging with an IR35 assessment consultancy called Orange Genie - they are in the process of getting our contractor status determinations completed. If you'd like I can pass on a contact name there that may be abel to help you :)



  • Hi Lorna, I agree with Gary regarding the CIPD advice on IR35 but may also be worth considering any 3rd parties? Do you have any agencies you may use or potentially content on LinkedIn too? Good luck!

  • Hi Lorna

    This is a great discussion to get started and I'm sure that there are plenty of people in the Community that can help. However, you have posted in the CPD and Careers Forum. You'll have much more success if you post in the HR Forum, I suspect. All you need to do is to hover your cursor over the Forums heading above if you are using a desktop device or click the three small horizontal lines on the blue background if you are using a mobile - from there you will see the Forum list. Or you can go back to the home page and scroll down a little bit.

    To try and help you anyway, have you had a look at the IR35 advice from the CIPD?
