IR35 reviews with Bauer and Cottrell

Orange Genie Accountancy work in partnership with Bauer & Cottrell to provide you with the very best and latest advice in relation to IR35. Bauer & Cottrell are a leading IR35 specialist firm, headed by Kate Cottrell. They enjoy an excellent reputation for IR35 compliance and their reviews are founded on principles of honesty and integrity, values they share with Orange Genie Accountancy.

Since April 2017 in the public sector and April 2021 in the private sector the responsibility of who determines the IR35 status has moved from the Limited Company contractor to the end clients (excluding small end clients for the private sector). Your end client should provide you with a Status Determination Statement. If you disagree with the status given, Bauer and Cottrell provide IR35 SOS (Second Opinion Survey) assistance.

For those that contract through small end clients, the IR35 status is still your responsibility, and it is more important than ever to get your status right. You just cannot accept that your contract has IR35 friendly clauses included, but you need to look at the practicality of how you work and your relationship with the end client.

For further information about the review service contact your dedicated accountant on 01296 468 185 or email
