Video Guides

All these acronyms can get confusing. Alan brings you up to speed on the new IR35 legislation and how using an MVL (Members Voluntary Liquidation) could be your best route forward.

Why changes to IR35 are a good thing

A lot has been written about why IR35 is bad for contractors. But it's not that simple. Freelancers like you are using MVLs (Members Voluntary Liquidation) as they move from contract to contract or from contractor to employee and back to being a contractor. Alan explains that there are many benefits to the IR35 legislation, especially when using MVLs

Do you know your IR35 from your MVL?

MVL or Member’s Voluntary Liquidation sounds terminal but, it’s not. It’s just a process that allows you, as a contractor, to take the built-up funds in your business. It’s ideal if your employment status has changed, for example, because of IR35, you’re moving to a new contract or just sitting on a dormant registered company.

How to close your company and make a profit

Are you inside or outside IR35?

If you’re a contractor then you will most likely have had a discussion with your employer’s HR department on how they need to re-assess your working practices. But does it really matter if you’re working inside or outside IR35?

Honey I shrunk the tax bill

As contractors, we’re always looking to reduce our tax bills. There are some really helpful government schemes to use especially when we’re coming to the end of a contract, switching to PAYE or just moving out of contracting altogether. In this video, Alan explains the options.

I want a fast red car and a helicopter

Being a freelancer is actually a lifestyle choice. People are building funds in their company so that they can take those expensive trips abroad, buy a new property, or break out of contracting altogether. So, what's the best way to take the funds from your business?
