IT AIN’T BROKE SO LET’S FIX IT!


In the wacky world of HMRC, just about anything is possible so long as it is daft and incompetent. It would be funny if it wasn’t such an awful waste of the country’s resources. Even I was staggered to learn it had spent three years threatening to sue itself and the issue at the heart of this is relevant to every single limited company contractor in the country.


GMPFive Consulting Ltd provided software services to HMRC from 2013 to 2015. The end employer - HMRC IT Department - assessed the contract as being very firmly outside of IR35 and settled the company invoices accordingly. Then in July 2015, the Numpty Department of HMRC - which is normally most of HMRC but in this case I refer to the IR35 limited company contractor


CONSIDERED WORDS BY OAKTREE


ACCOUNTANCY


section - sent the company a letter saying that it was assessing whether the contract with HMRC was inside or outside IR35.


After extensive correspondence, the inspector determined in September 2016 that in fact this contract was very firmly inside IR35 and duly raised an assessment for an extra £59k of tax. After much more


correspondence, plus no doubt much hassle and expense for the directors of the company, the Numpty Department finally dropped the case in July 2018.


The lesson here for all contractors is clear. If one part of HMRC can disagree violently with another part over the IR35 employment status of a given contractor, this highlights what an utter shambles HMRC has made of IR35 since 1999. If your contract has been assessed as ‘definitely inside IR35’ then that may or may not be an accurate assessment of the true state of affairs. Maybe you have grounds to contest this and pay less tax.


After all, if HMRC can throw a legal challenge at HMRC, so can you!
