Contractor Public Sector Products

Stack of paper documents

SThree have partnered with QDOS to bring an innovative offering to the market with Status Review, our determination assurance tool.

From April, the off-payroll legislation means that The Public Sector Client is tasked with the determination of whether a contractor role sits within the legislation or not. Essentially whether IR35 applies or not.

QDOS Status Review provides a review of the determination against the facts of the contractor’s actual working practices. We want our customers and contractors to feel confident in the determinations they are making and also ensure that they are not making blanket ‘inside’ determinations due to lack of knowledge or support.

With a trusted brand and impressive accuracy level we believe that this tool can better understand the complete picture of an engagement versus the fully computerised HMRC ESS tool which may not even be useable in time for the introduction of these rules.

Where an ‘Outside IR35’ determination has been provided as a result of Status Review, the liability for mis-classification will be undertaken by us the ‘Payer’.

Direct 
We can support you as a direct contractors supply you via either a schedule of work or compliant Framework. Potentially you could also benefit from faster payment terms and you can be confident you will be supported around determinations without the liability risk.

Deemed 
Where your contract role is found to be inside of the off-payroll regulations, you will be ‘inside’ by IR35 and treated as a ‘deemed employee’. This means that your Limited Company will need to be taxed at source. We have a payroll mechanism which will support the deemed calculations and make the appropriate remittance to HMRC on RTI. This ensures your company receives the appropriate revenue and paperwork as well as being fully compliant with the new rules.

Switch
We have partnered with a number of specialist Umbrella firms to provide simplified solutions to switching from PSC to an Umbrella model. They will be able to take you through your options around your existing Personal Service Company (PSC) and transition you to the most relevant product to your circumstances.
