HMRC have created an online tool for testing IR35 status: Check Employment Status for Tax (CEST). It is an
optional service consisting of multiple choice questions. Despite HMRC’s encouragement to use the service,
the tool remains insufficient for assessing status; tribunal judges have highly criticised the use of a tick-box
exercise to determine status. Our Status Review system provides a robust assessment process ensuring a fair
and compliant approach to the off-payroll rules.
