Consultancies use businesses like James Chase to establish the ideal delivery teams, but by cutting out the middleman and coming directly to us, our clients have greater agility, control & cost savings.

Project Solutions

Attract the best of the UK contract market outside of IR35 and flexibly deploy high performing teams.

Helping you navigate IR35

Also known as the ‘Intermediaries Legislation’, HMRC defines IR35 as off-payroll working. IR35 is shorthand for the UK tax legislation that is designed to identify contractors and businesses which are avoiding paying the appropriate tax by working as ‘disguised’ employees, or are engaging workers on a self-employed basis to ‘disguise’ their true employment status. 

Benefits of Project Solutions

With Project Solutions you can retain and attract the best of the UK’s contractor workforce without any risks from IR35.

No IR35 liability

Your engagement with Project Solutions will be a ‘fully contracted-out service’ (as defined by HMRC), removing all your IR35 liabilities as we become both the ‘fee payer’ and ‘hirer’.

IR35 insurance

Not only are you indemnified by Project Solutions being both the ‘hirer’ and ‘fee payer’, we provide further peace of mind by ensuring all our individual contractor engagements are independently assessed to be outside IR35. Furthermore, each outside IR35 assessment is insured by Kingsbridge Contractor Insurance (underwritten by Zurich), which protects all parties in the supply chain – including the customer, Project Solutions, the agency (if applicable) and the contractor.

Retain your best contract resources

Project Solutions will be able to offer your existing contractors outside IR35 contracts, ensuring they are happy to stay working on delivering your projects.

Shared risk

A proportion of our charges will only be payable following your acceptance of the deliverables stated in the SoW (Statement of Work), meaning you will not pay us unless we deliver what you want.

Better contractor performance

Project Solutions will transform your high-level project requirements into detailed deliverables for each contractor and link payment milestones to each deliverable. This means your contractors will be incentivised to deliver the outcomes you want, not just getting their timesheet authorised.

Smooth transition 

We manage all communications and contract management with existing contract workers and incumbent recruitment agencies to ensure minimal disruption to your projects.

Future proof

By engaging with Project Solutions, you now have a platform for attracting the best of the UK contract market outside IR35 going forwards.​
