Retain your key contingent work-force 'outside' of IR35

The CONTORA platform allows you to transition your off-payroll suppliers to an outcome-based framework thus remaining ‘outside’ of IR35.

If your existing contractors are walking away rather than moving to Fixed Term Contracts (FTC) or umbrella companies, then CONTORA is your solution.

Don't let your projects fail because your current processes don't accommodate outcome-based delivery by contractors.

CONTORA has been developed to help all parties in the resource supply chain. It is a delivery model that ensures full compliance of 'outside' IR35 engagements.

Centralised Ir35 records​ Contora
CONTORA helps define and document your ways of working and your suppliers’ ways of working, to support correct status determinations for off-payroll engagements.
The entire off-payroll way of working can be fully managed within CONTORA.
approve IR35 compliant statements Contora
You can confidently issue your suppliers with a Status Determination Statement, based on the documented ways of working of your complete resource supply chain.
Mitigate Risk
The whole contractor/client relationship is manged through CONTORA via Statements of Work. All milestones, deliverables and payments are managed through this portal. Everything is fully transparent, recorded and evidenced.
CONTORA can help you re-align your off-payroll ways of working in a compliant and fully managed way.
CONTORA will contain a pool of IR35 compliant contractors to which you can advertise your Statement of Work. It will reduce your need for using third parties to find the best contractors. It will reduce the amount of paperwork you need to do. It will save you time. It will save you money.

Contora makes your contracts and statements of work visible, interactive and collaborative, rather than paper-based, inert and difficult to manage.

IR35 Compliant. Complete peace of mind.
“Whenever I do any form of training or speak to any clients, what I always say is documentary evidence is key. HMRC, whilst it might not be paperwork anymore, it might be held on computers, but HMRC will want evidence, HMRC always want you to prove something didn't happen. HMRC are just paper mad - they constantly want evidence”
