Professional Risks: Qdos Lands Two Industry Awards for Innovative IR35 Solutions

Monday, November 9, 2020

IR35 specialist Qdos was recognised for its industry leading IR35 solutions in The Contracting Awards 2020 last week, having won ‘The Best Legal, Compliance or Tax Adviser’ and ‘The Best Insurance Provider or Broker’. 

The Contracting Awards is an annual event held to recognise and celebrate outstanding service providers – from accounting and umbrella companies, to banking, mortgage, insurance, compliance specialists and recruitment agencies. 

Qdos, that has a successful history of protecting contractors with their IR35 compliance and is currently supporting over 2,200 recruitment agencies and hiring organisations with their IR35 processes through the Qdos Status Review facility, entered two categories and stood out as the best in both:

best contractorBest Contractor Insurance Provider or Broker

This category aimed to find the industry’s leading provider or broker of insurance. The winner had to demonstrate that it offered the best overall service through exceptional innovation, excellent customer service, value for money and clear claims policies. Qdos provides comprehensive IR35 insurance and a range of business insurance policies to contractors, recruitment agencies and organisations engaging independent workers. 

As it was stated: “The judges chose Qdos Contractor as the winner as they stand out in the industry as having a high level of knowledge and are clearly the experts in their field.”

This category sought out companies providing the best compliance or tax advice. The winner not only needed to provide the most effective compliance offering on the market but also have a proven track record of successfully defending clients when it matters.

Having carried out over 150,000 IR35 status reviews and defended more than 1,600 IR35 enquiries in the 20 years that IR35 has been in existence, it was also said: “The judges chose Qdos Contractor as their winners because of their very specific and targeted legal work in the IR35 market – a great entry.”

Commenting on receiving these prestigious awards, our CEO, Seb Maley, said:

“I’m delighted and very proud that Qdos Contractor picked up the prize in both categories we were shortlisted in. Being acknowledged as the best in our field is a real testament to the team here, who work tirelessly to advise, protect and serve the best interests of our clients.
