The new IR35 regulations as well as false self-employment issues in Germany try to tackle tax avoidance by the workers as well as the companies hiring them, who provide their services to clients via an intermediary. Sounds complicated? It is, but basically you will be at risk, if you directly work together with external workers through an intermediary.
Silke Becker, a well known legal advisor in the contingent workforce industry & the ex Head of legal at Hays AG, shows how forming your contingent workforce to teams will efficiently protect you against these new extra tax burdens.
This was specifically prepared for German case law, however it can also find application to the new IR35 regulations in the UK.
