Understanding IR35 UK Tax Regulations: Aviation Recruitment

We have done the hard work to ensure you don’t have to


Specific to the UK employment market, Argo have partnered with
WTT consulting, a firm specialising in Tax and Legal compliance.

We have provided some of the key facts to consider when reviewing the potential impact this new legislation has on your business:

What are the risks to my business?

There are operational, legal, and financial and reputational risks to getting this wrong. If it is determined by HMRC that a contractor is in fact a “disguised employee”, clients could pay charges amounting to more than 50% of the total amount paid to each contractor, plus fines and interest- and this could be backdated from 6 April 2021 up to four years.

This means that, in 2025, you could be liable to pay HMRC an additional 50% of your total contingent worker costs for the past four years, plus any fines and interest on overdue payments.

But what are the opportunities to my business?

There are new models emerging that present viable contingent workforce solutions. If implemented correctly and compliantly, these models could give you a competitive advantage as you attract off-payroll talent who can adapt to these changes. You can retain existing talent by utilising these solutions or even migrate these workers into your permanent workforce. However, to implement these changes you need to understand IR35 and fully understand the full composition of your workforce. IR35 can then be a positive opportunity to implement a market-leading contingent workforce solution, Argo would be happy to support you through investigating how to work with the new legislation to get maximum impact for your business.
