Covers qualifying contracts
Our policy covers legal costs for "Outside IR35" assessed contracts where either the start or end date of the contract is within the period of paid membership. IR35 Shield for Contractors membership must be held until the end of the contract.
*This applies to contracts under the Intermediaries Legislation (IR35) (Chapter 8 of ITEPA). For firms wishing to insure tax risk under off-payroll (Chapter 10 of ITEPA) other options are available for customers using IR35 Shield for Business.
