Welcome to PSTAX eLearning

Our e-Learning modules have been specifically designed to help Local Authorities and other public sector organisations with their training requirements.

Off-Payroll Working (IR35) – Module 1

During this training, which should take around 50 minutes to complete, you will develop an understanding of HMRC’s off-payroll working rules, when they apply and the steps that should be followed if they do.

Although off-payroll working refers to arrangements involving an intermediary, this module will also provide you with a basic understanding of the employment status rules. The principles that apply when determining whether an individual should be treated as an employee, rather than self-employed, are fundamental to understanding the off-payroll working rules.

During the training module there are some questions to confirm your understanding of each of the sections covered. At the end of the module, there are ten questions for you to answer of which you will need to answer eight correctly to pass the training.

This training will cover the following:

  • How to navigate through the course
  • Introduction
  • Engagement types
  • Do the rules apply?
  • Basic principles of employment status
  • Applying the rules
  • Actions required
  • Summary and conclusions
  • Test – ten questions randomly selected (80% pass mark)

Off-Payroll Working (IR35) – Module 2

Off-Payroll working module 2 follows on from module 1, and is intended to help you to understand how to complete the HRMC’s Check Employment Status for Tax or CEST online tool.

On completion of this module you should be able to answer the CEST questions accurately for any given circumstances. This will allow you to rely on the CEST outcome.‍

This module should take around 40 minutes to complete. As with module 1, we ask you to navigate through the pages and to check your understanding through the use of the examples and questions, and finish with a test where you are required to answer 8 out of 10 questions correctly.
