Who, what, why


Roots IR35 Status Services (a trading name of Roots Insurance Brokers Limited) is a provider of specialist IR35 status reviews, IR35 insurances, IR35 consultancy and IR35 advice. As part of the wider Roots Finance Group, we bring together a highly experienced team who have a deep history and expertise in the unique world that is IR35 having worked at board level at some of the most prominent contractor and IR35 servicing companies in the country.

We fell into IR35 over 15 years ago, but since then we’ve developed an almost unparalleled level of expertise and experience in what is a complex area of tax law.

We’ve reviewed thousands of contracts in respect of IR35 status, and working practices reviews, designed and successfully sold some of the leading IR35 insurances available in the UK, and built from the ground up both face-to-face and online IR35 solutions that have been used by large private, PLC, public and SME businesses alike.

Our aim is simple – to allow UK contractors to better understand, educate themselves and protect themselves in relation to the seemingly ever changing IR35 legislation.
