Nétive has appropriately prepared for the changes in IR35 legislation, and has added a variety of functional items to ensure we can support our partners and clients in their own journeys to IR35 compliance.
We have included functionality that allows for the permissioned and appropriate users to specify whether or not assignments are covered by IR35 and to record the repeated verification test. This IR35 functionality can be made available by a configuration change, and can be incorporated to relevant programmes.
It is critical to note that Nétive has not incorporated IR35 status determination. Instead, users will be prompted, in line with the workflows and approval processes that are configured, to either complete the status determination through the government gateway, or through a 3rd party system. Nétive will then incorporate the relevant IR35 determination certificate as part of the ‘digital file’ associated with the assignment. This ‘digital file’ will then be linked with the appropriate approval steps determined during configuration. We have also developed a number of fields across assignments and job requisitions to allow for the relevant IR35 variables and information to be recorded and made visible.
So in short we have made the IR35 status within the Nétive system visible, and incorporated the appropriate workflows and approval processes to ensure IR35 compliance, though the actual IR35 determination is to be made elsewhere.
