I would like to get my contracts checked over to see if they fall within IR35. At present I get clients via agencies, therefore the agent does the contract. However now I want to start doing my own.

Has anyone worked with a good solicitor who can draft IR35 compliant contracts which can be used both with direct clients and via agents?

Many thanks

There are plenty of contract review services for agency issued contracts - QDOS, B&C or Abbey Tax are the leaders in the field.

For your own contracts, if you are an IPSE member, there are contract templates on the website which you can use.

You are going to be very lucky to get an agent to accept your contract. They will also default to theirbown because they have had them checked legally. They won't want to do that to yours. Could you use one of the ones you got checked as a template?
Maybe if you speak to QDOS they can help.

You can use a solicitor to amend an agency contract but they will not accept one you draft yourself.

There's a template contract with an agency here (http://www.qdoscontractor.com/ir35/ir35-resources) but, as others have said, getting an agency to accept your own contract will be tough.
