Work well, Your way

One of the many benefits of self-employment is the freedom to work how and when you want.

And we believe this shouldn’t be hindered by IR35. With IR35 Switch, you can take on a mixture of ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ contracts compliantly by toggling between Umbrella employment and limited company contracting.  This gives you the greatest choice of roles and ensures you work tax-efficiently, all for one simple fixed fee.

How does it work?

Working through IR35 Switch couldn’t be easier.

When your contract is ‘inside’ IR35, you can ‘rest’ your PSC and work through Workwell Umbrella at no extra cost. You’ll receive a payslip with all the necessary tax deductions along with standard employee benefits & access to Workwell Rewards. And we’ll manage your PSC accounts in the background, submitting your payroll (RTI) and VAT returns if necessary.

Once your ‘inside’ contract ends, contact us and switch back to working through your PSC. At this point, your PSC will be paid direct by your agency or end client as before, and you can pay yourself a mixture of salary and dividends.

IR35 Switch

Endless flexibility

There’s no limit to the number of times you can switch between PSC and Umbrella with IR35 Switch, so you can enjoy the flexibility of contracting, compliantly maximise your take-home pay, and avoid turning down roles due to their IR35 status.
