I am a junior doctor about to start working as an A&E locum from August through a limited company. I would like some advice on whether or not I am am likely to be inside or outside of IR35 regulations.
I am getting work via 3 different agencies and plan to pick up ad hoc shifts in various hospitals in my region. For example, I might do a week in A&E in one hospital through one agency, then another 2 weeks through another agency, a day here a day there, etc. Rates are set hourly but are often negotiable and as far as I'm aware there is no notice period to be served. I will not be entitled to annual leave/sick pay/pension contributions.
It would be obviously financially beneficial if this arrangement fell outside of the IR35 regulations but I can't find any clear advice on the matter. Can anyone help?
Out of interest, how would this compare to if I picked up say a 6 month contract in one A&E with a set hourly rate but again no entitlement to sick pay or pension?
Let me know if anymore information is required? I'm really keen to get some expert opinion on this.
Thanks in advance,
