From April 2017, new IR35 rules will apply to contractors who work on government contracts through their own limited company. Those that work through an umbrella structure will be unaffected.
The new rules will see the responsibility of paying the correct tax move from the contractor and their limited company to an intermediary or entity “closest” to the contractor. If you are placing these contractors on government or public sector contracts – then your agency is the closest party to the contractor.
You will need to ensure
We believe that you have 3 options:
Working with contractors who have a PSC is what Pulse Accounting was created to do and does well. Running payroll for contractors is our bread and butter. We already have the systems and capability to undertake all the responsibilities of the ‘Fee Payer’ under the terms of the new rules. This ensures compliance for you and the contractor.
Amulet is essentially an Umbrella company for PSC’s caught by the new rules so you simply pay Pulse, and we pay the PSC.
Reasons to choose Amulet:
✔ Our seamless service removes the risk and challenges to your agency
✔ No additional cost to your agency

✔ We ensure compliance for every part of the supply chain
✔ We work independently of the contractor’s limited company
✔ We will assess the working arrangements and establish if it is “in” or “out” of employment legislation
✔ If caught within the regulations then we will calculate and pay away the necessary PAYE and NICs deductions
✔ We will undertake the correct reporting under RTI
✔ We understand the differences between government contracts vs private sector contracts
✔ We are experienced contractor accountants who are there to support you 24/7
