Which charities will benefit from this funding and when – local charities?
£370 million will be available to support small and medium-sized charities who are at the heart of local communities and which are making a big difference during the outbreak, including those delivering food, essential medicines and providing financial advice. These monies will be distributed by organisations including the National Lottery Community Fund for those in England. It is understood these monies will need to be applied for. The application system for the National Lottery Community Fund grant pot is expected to be operational within a period of weeks.
If you consider the factors used to determine status you can include the following terms that are more in line with a self-employed relationship:
- The right to provide a substitute of the contractor’s choice in the event the individual is not able to perform the services;
- The ability to work for other businesses as long as doing so will not affect the services to be provided by the contractor;
- The contractor should have sufficient control over how, when and where (if possible) they provide the services;
- A degree of financial risk can be included for unsatisfactory work or failing to complete a project or task
We have terms that cover all of these points that can be tailored to your needs. The consultancy agreement is included in our IR35 toolkit.
