    Navigating Off Payroll for Locums

    The introduction of ‘Off Payroll’ working rules (IR35) in 2017 significantly altered the tax landscape for locums. We provide essential guidance to navigate these changes effectively.

    Off Payroll for Locums advisory

    Our services are designed to assist in understanding and complying with IR35, offering tailored advice to minimise tax liabilities and maximise earnings within these regulations.

    Benefits of IR35 for Locums

    Effective navigation of IR35 can ensure locums remain compliant while still exploring potential tax efficiencies. Our expertise helps you understand the implications of working under IR35.

    • In-depth analysis of IR35 applicability to your work.
    • Strategies to manage tax under IR35 regulations.
    • Assistance with corporation and income tax returns.
    • Guidance on payroll versus limited company decisions.
    • Insights into different NHS and GP practice interpretations.
    • Avoidance of potential tax penalties.

    Personalised IR35 Strategy

    Our approach is to analyse your specific locum work and determine how IR35 impacts you. We offer bespoke advice, whether you’re working with NHS authorities, GP practices, or through agencies, ensuring that your financial choices are both compliant and advantageous under the ‘off payroll’ working rules.

    We have received an excellent service since we moved to Nichols & Co. The transition has been the most hassle-free and transparent. They are always very helpful with any queries you might have and have a very good working knowledge of General Practice and are keenly aware of the challenges Practices face within the changing environment of the NHS.
    We have been very impressed by the way Nichols & Co continue to deliver the range of services they provide from Accounts to Tax and NHS Pension advice.

    At the year-end meetings, the accounts are presented in an understandable format without any unnecessary jargons. We have found Practice consultation and advice on Practice as well as personal tax matters from Nichols & Co specifically helpful.
    We would not hesitate to recommend them to other GP Practices.

    Dr William Jasper, GP Partner

    I am a GP who works both in salaried and sessional roles. I have been with Nichols & Co for nearly three years. They have helped with my tax returns and can help with the range of different forms required in GP work. Danny and Shadmir have been accurate and efficient in their advice and guidance throughout. They have also been helpful and responsive when I have needed advice on the purchase of a car and also when looking to prove my income in order to get a mortgage.

    The system for providing income details and expenses is very easy to use and the summary they provide of how and when to pay your tax could not be clearer. I would recommend Nichols & Co to any colleague looking for an accountant with a good knowledge of GP work. 

    Dr C DeSouza, Salaried GP

    I’ve been with Nichols and Co for nearly 10 years with Debra being my accountant. I first contacted them when I received letters for tax arrears due to the wrong tax codes being applied during my hospital jobs.

    Debra sorted this matter out and has always provided helpful and honest advice regarding tax matters. She has also helped my wife with her tax returns. I would definitely recommend their services for accounting matters with a special interest in helping doctors with their tax affairs. They are approachable, helpful and efficient.
