Key contact

We are delighted to announce that we’ve been awarded “Future of Legal Services Innovation – Small Sized Practice”, at the 2022 Legal Innovation Awards. 

The award was presented for our latest product, IR35 Manager, which provides businesses with a comprehensive contractor management solution that they can rely on. It reduces risk, saves time using automation and produces clear, consistent assessments. It also comes with a legal support package to ensure clients receive a holistic view of IR35.

Key benefits of the system include:

  • Risk management
  • Time saving
  • Cost saving
  • Quality & consistency


The IR35 rules changed for the private sector from 6 April 2021, shifting the responsibility for the determination of employment status from individual to engager. If the individual is found to be an employee, the liability for any unpaid employment tax required falls to the engaging company. This liability could be significant.

The scale and frequency of testing required, and the complexity of determining employment status in the media sector means these changes are particularly daunting for entertainment businesses – our product makes it easier.
