Inside or Outside of IR35? HR can help

The concept of a ‘disguised employee’ continues to be a source of discussion in all kinds of circles: accounting and taxation; HR and employment law; and indeed politics (when Brexit takes a backseat for just one second!). ‘Disguised employees’ is a term used by HMRC to define workers who are supplying a service to a client on a business-to-business basis, most commonly in the form of a limited company, when they are effectively operating as an employee of that company. The tax avoidance associated with this led to the introduction of IR35.

My First Week at Gravitate

My first week at Gravitate HR has went by in a flash but I already feel part of the team. I am beginning to get to grips with all the great things Gravitate HR do with their clients and I am really enjoying learning about what we can do for them.

Having previously been a manager in retail, I began my HR career in 2014 when I completed my Masters degree in Human Resource Management. I went on to work for an outsourcing company as a People Advisor and became a Senior HR Advisor. I then moved to a role as an Employment Law Advisor in 2017 before joining the team at Gravitate HR. I am very keen on continuing my HR career and was delighted when Margery chose me to work with the team.

I have had a great first week and could not ask for a better team to work with. They have made me feel very welcome and I am already working with some of our clients and focusing on their HR goals for 2019. I am looking forward to working with the team!
