Does IR35 apply to an Umbrella Company?

No. IR35 legislation applies to individuals who provide their services via a limited company.


IR35 exists to prevent individuals operating as disguised employees, whilst getting the tax advantages of trading as a limited company. As an employee of an umbrella company, you will be always be taxed on a PAYE basis which means you as an individual will always be IR35 compliant.
