Informing your IR35 (off payroll) approach

Get your role determined

First things first, you must confirm the IR35 status of an assignment by providing a ‘Status Determination Statement’ (SDS).

There are a number of online tools available to help you determine the status, such as HMRC's CEST (Check Employment Status for Tax), which presents a series of questions to help determine employment status (find out more here) However, it's been widely agreed that the determination can be challenged.

Therefore, Cognitive have taken the decision to offer an IR35 insurance-backed route. As part of this, we will cover the cost for status determinations and role assessments. Plus, it only takes 1 day to get a determination.
