IR35 & Healthcare

With the introduction of the new Government legislation which came into force on the 6th April 2017, all healthcare agency workers must now be paid via an Umbrella Company or as a Sole Trader providing they can demonstrate to HMRC they are not subject to SDC (Supervision, Direction & Control).  The IR35 legislative changes, working inside your own Limited Company, being paid dividend payments and claiming expenses, is no longer allowed by HMRC.

This legislation will affect every NHS Trust and every agency supplying staff to the NHS. Whats more trusts are applying IR35 across the board and will not be accepting candidates working as a LTD company.

If you are a contractor in the NHS, then it’s likely you’ve been affected by the recent changes to the Intermediaries legislation (IR35). The changes have meant that limited company contracting is no longer an attractive or viable option for many in the healthcare sector – there is increased administrative burden and lower take-home pay. Also, there are fewer opportunities for limited company contractors in the NHS as many organisations no longer hire contractors who operate through their own limited companies.

It’s quick and easy to sign up and once registered you simply submit your approved time-sheets using our online portal.
