Contractor & Consultancy Engagement

The IR35 reforms in April 2021 are already having an impact on the UK contractor and consultancy market.  If you are reading this page you may be wondering how you will keep your projects on track while complying fully with tax regulations. Every recruitment agency is offering advice but as yet it is not apparent on how they will adapt their business models to make compliance possible without pushing contractors toward umbrella companies or within large consultancy firms.  The supply chain model and liabilities is complex and confusing. Resource3 offers a different approach.


The very best talent is, and always has been, available on fully compliant contractual terms.  Nothing should change if you want to engage true contractors or consultants and not temp employees.


Resource3 can also put you in contact with a range of skilled consultants who will engage on contracts without mutuality of obligation on any length of engagement, full, part or flexible time from our pool of associates.  Resource3, and our associates, work to Statements of Work and not as temps. Our associates are all based in Central Scotland but can engage remotely with clients anywhere. Have a look at Our Associates to see a selection of the skills and talent that could be available to you now. 


Want to engage on a fixed price basis?  Your biggest problem will be finding an agency that can help you get that. Resource3 consultancy can work with you directly on fixed priced projects and provide all resources you need. 


Do you need help preparing Statements of Work to go to market for contractors? Resource3 can help you prepare a Statement of Works and help you find small companies that can bid for the work, we will handle all bid responses, and all you will have to do is review the short list and make your selection. This is will be a significant time saving on traditional external "recruitment" processes.  Remember, if you engage contractors "outside IR35" you are effectively outsourcing work, not recruiting temps!


IR35 is an opportunity for your business to engage the Professional Services you need, when you need them, which has been Resource3 philosophy since inception in 2012. There are no additional fees for recruitment agencies, umbrella companies, or other intermediaries. Resource3 will engage in insurance backed external assessment of all engagements to give you piece of mind that all parties are fully compliant with tax law.
