Welcome to PSTAX eLearning

Our Off Payroll Working IR35 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 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 circumstance. 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.

This training will cover the following:

  • How to navigate through the course
