Assessment completed using the IR35 Shield. Great communication and transparency from Brighter throughout, in the lead up to completing the assessment, how it affects contractors and the work that's gone into choosing the best tool. Assessment was simple to complete. Deemed outside and contract renewed until the end of the year. Feeling very positive about the whole process.

Determination completed via the Shield, and deemed Outside IR35 and new contract post March being provided in due course. The Brighter team have done a great job in keeping everyone appraised of next steps, what to expect etc which has made the process actually quite easy to complete

Just had my contract extended until Dec 2021, alongside determination deeming me Outside IR35. No great surprise as the team have done a super job ensuring everyone understands their responsibilities, how to operate etc. Great communication throughout.

I have now received my individually assessed IR35 determination from Brighter. I know the Brighter team have invested a lot of time and energy into ensuring that they can offer fair assessments based on the facts of how they are engaging with consultants and end clients. Using the IR35 Shield model has given me the confidence that the determination is fair and accurate. At a time when there is so much uncertainty and companies making blanket bans it feels great to see someone leading by example.

Determination done and Outside IR35; the Brighter team placed everyone’s contract up to end of March 2021; whilst they went through a thorough, open, transparent process for the benefit of everyone in the chain. New and improved contract now in place aligned to SOW until end of Dec 2021 Great example of getting things done properly!

Same programme as other Associates ehi have commented but in a different area if the Programme. Determination deemed as Outside IR35 which is great! Superbly informed throughout and also learnt what tweaks to make to how I operate as a service provider - all wrapped into a detailed SOW Really pleased with the outcome and working for people who truly understand what’s what!

Wahoo.... fairly assessed and Outside IR35. The guys at Brighter use the Shield portal for assessments. Simple, well documented and discussed, and new contract issued. I don’t know what all the fuss is about! Clearly moving to a consultancy and SoW model works - who’d have thought! ????

The team at Brighter have recently completed my determination, which has been classed as Outside IR35. No surprise here as they have spent the best part of 18 months getting all their assignments under robust SOWs and been educating clients and contractors on how they should be operating. The process itself was seamless using IR35 Shield and they have kept me appraised of what to expect throughout. The client themselves are also delighted as they were leaning towards blanket bans, but this is now off the table as the Brighter team undertake more Projects

I have recently had my determination for IR35 done by Brighter Consultancy, where I am an Associate. They have worked with the client, Associates and walked us through every step of a very slick and professional process. The outcome being a fair determination that has placed me Outside IR35, all assessed using the online tool via IR35 Shield. This has resulted in a happy contractor and happy client, and the Programme continues to gather pace. With all the bad press about IR35 I cant praise the team at Brighter highly enough, from talk us through the model, next steps, and supporting with any questions along the way
