As a self-employed person, you want to make sure that you are on the correct side of HMRC so that you are not hit with penalties and interest on any outstanding tax or National Insurance liabilities that could be incurred if you are found to meet the conditions of IR35 or MSC.


In a nutshell, IR35 legislation looks at the underlying relationship and contract that you have with the end client to determine whether it should apply to you. You and your intermediary need to conduct the assessment of the relationship for each and every one of your assignments. If IR35 can be applied to your contractual relationships with your clients, you will be liable for any underpaid tax and National Insurance.

Managed Service Company (MSC)

Since this legislation was introduced in Budget 2007 and extended in 2008, if you are found to be a person working through a MSC, all your earnings could be subject to income tax and Class 1 National Insurance as if you were employed and paid using PAYE. Any outstanding tax and National Insurance liabilities could also incur penalties and interest. As well as this, even if the MSC is wound up, HMRC has the ability to transfer irrecoverable debts to third-parties involved.
