Recruitment agency Hays IT has formed a partnership with Cookson Dell, a financial advice company, to provide its contractors with advice on the IR35 tax legislation.
A Cookson Dell hotline has been set up specifically for Hays IT contractors. Lee Chant, director of Hays IT said, "Hays IT is strongly opposed to IR35 in its current form, and we intend to continue active lobbying against its introduction. However, in the meantime, many contractors have questions on this subject, and other tax issues, which they want experts to answer."
Colin Smith, a director at Cookson Dell said that the service is free for Hays IT contractors and that the hotline has had a variety of queries to date. "We've had a number of queries so far with contractors asking what it is and how to avoid it."
Cookson Dell & Co can be contacted on 01908 260 727.
