    Default New contract considerations

    Hi all

    About to leave a long running outside IR35 contract and might soon be offered a new short term contract with another client. New contract is likely to be outside IR35 and run up to end of March 2020.

    I asked during the interview about determination of the role post April and they haven't yet decided but I'm assuming that the role will be deemed inside post April.

    I guess many may be in a similar position. What mitigating steps can I take to avoid any HMRC eye-balling.

    - IR35 check the contract
    - give notice in due time to ensure final payment lands before April
    - ask client to inform me if/when they do a determination on the role

    Anything else?

    I wouldn't worry about it to much. it's gonna be a 3/4 month gig if they do determine inside from April. HMRC aren't going to chase small fry when there's people with 10 years and then declared inside. And your insurance will cover your losses for a short term gig.
    See You Next Tuesday
