"IR35": on or off-payroll

Krofire remains flexible

From April 6th 2021 the UK HM Revenue & Customs introduce new Payroll rules for anybody who services a UK company which falls under UK Tax legislation (over a certain size). The new rules are known as "IR35" and mean that the professional worker is treated in one of two ways:

  • As an independent entrepreneur
  • As a salaried employee

The Client must now decide in which way they will treat the professionals who service their project requirements. If the Client decides that the professional is a "deemed employee" ("inside IR35") then 100% of all payments to the worker must be paid through a payroll system and all taxes deducted at source. Unpaid Tax liabilities now rests with the client and not Krofire. However, the "inside IR35" route is more expensive hence a higher rate is quoted.

Our clients are free to choose the "on-payroll/inside IR35" or the "off-payroll/outside IR35" routes from 2021. We will cater to either arrangement.

Krofire Enterprises Ltd will remain as a registered business but may be in a dormant state whilst it only has one client inside IR35. This situation could change rapidly at any moment in which case we will make appropriate arrangements

This means Krofire is always open for business for new clients who offer engagements inside & outside of IR35 at the same time. We maintain full flexibility to be both on & off payroll for different clients simultaneously.

Knowledge - Wisdom - Experience

Krofire's monthly statement of our availability

Krofire Experience
Krofire represents the very best practice in capturing and recording Knowledge for re-use. Whatever we do, and whoever the Client, we will always generate the best possible documentation that always exceeds the Client's expectations. We believe in capturing what people have learnt because it demonstrates their understanding and provides a knowledge bank for others in a different place or time. We do NOT generate a culture of dependency. We thrust Wisdom into the hands of the people who need it. We trust them to make best use of it. We promote a culture where knowledge is recorded and wisdom is only as valuable as its communication from person to the next. We DISCOURAGE the monopolisation of knowledge into the hands of a minority. No politics. No fuss. No nonsense. Power to the People.

Please note that this statement of availability is to be treated as factual & not a judgement upon the work of our clients. If you have any questions please ONLY contact Krofire Enterprises Ltd, NOT a 3rd party.

Company Professionalism

Company Culture

We believe a professional is one who has the best long term interests of your whole organisation at heart. We would like to think that all our Clients & Partners agree and respect our wish to operate with the utmost honesty, integrity & transparency at all times. Work hard, dress appropriately, work smart. Turn up early, leave on time. Always happy to help: but evenings, weekends, staycations & holidays are not times to be in the office. Failing to plan is planning to fail. Lunch-breaks are for long walks and fresh air. Happiness, health & family always come before Business. Independence is a virtue.


Code of Conduct

Krofire operates a strict "no-bullying" Code of Conduct. We regard the many agencies we work with as friends & Business Partners in peer-to-peer relationships. We are paid for services they cannot supply whilst they are paid for services we cannot supply. Business Partners are expected to be responsible for their own cashflow and will act as a factor in this respect. We always bend over backwards to accommodate the Contractual requirements of our Partners IF the relationship is built upon mutual respect and goodwill. For such Business Partners, who respect this long-term relationship, we extend a generous 28 credit period from the date of our Invoices. For those agencies who wish to abuse their position, act unethically, "game" the Contract after it closes, persistently pay late, part-pay based upon their own cashflow difficulties, or are non-payers for whatever reason, we take the following corrective actions:

  • Withdrawal of services & goodwill
  • Credit terms strictly by payment in advance
This means that those offending agencies can no longer call upon Krofire services for existing or future clients. It means that Krofire will not share market intelligence nor recommend other contractors on their behalf. Krofire will share the matter with others in our network.

Read "The Six Signs of a Bad Agency" by IT Contractor as a brief guideline of what we look out for.
