HMRC has spent millions targeting freelancers under IR35, but a growing number of contractors have complete peace of mind about their IR35 status thanks to Abbey Tax’s freelancer services.

Our expert solutions independently determine your tax status and protect your tax position. Abbey Tax has worked with the freelancer market since IR35 was introduced, so your business will be in safe hands.

IR35 contract reviews

Our comprehensive review package fully analyses both the contractual terms and working practices of the engagement(s) using our ‘tried and tested’ IR35 status questionnaire. You receive a full report which includes any recommendations to improve the contractual terms and concludes with a “pass” or “fail”.

The review provides you with a specialist opinion as to the IR35 status of your engagement – so you can decide how you will be remunerated. It is also evidence of undertaking due diligence to help you avoid any penalty (of up to 30% of the tax due) if you are subsequently investigated. Finally, you can insure against any potential tax loss to give you complete peace of mind.

Once we are in receipt of your contract, a completed copy of our questionnaire and payment of the review fee, our full written report will be with you in five working days. Our pricing structure is set out below and where you have multiple contracts for review we can provide a bespoke quotation. In addition, for those with urgent cases, we can provide a quotation to complete the report to your required timescale.
