Outside IR35 (Off Payroll) insurance for client, contractor and agency. Lithium3 do work with clients using the CEST tool for IR35 determinations. However, to avoid the ambiguity of CEST offering an inconclusive determination and for that extra layer of protection Lithium3 have partnered with Larson Howie who offer a slick and thorough IR35 determination process backed up with insurance. This verify's IR35 status and removes risk for each party in the chain (Contractor, Client, Agency). Lithium3 pay for this insurance as part of our service offering.
Approved Umbrella Companies
For those contractors inside IR35 we are open to using recognised umbrella companies but we prefer to use our fully vetted partners. As legitimate umbrella’s work to the same tax rules the difference is often the price and service levels. Lithium3 have worked with our umbrella partners for over a decade and have negotiated so they offer the best value service to our contractors.
